The Irish in France Association was founded on the 1st of February 2017.
The aim of the association is to create a structure for the benefit of the Irish community in France, run by the Irish community in France. It will create and support community activities and initiatives that foster a vibrant sense of Irish community and identity, and allow the voices of the Irish in France to be heard within the worldwide community known as the Global Irish.
The Irish in France Association will run several events throughout the year.
It will also provide information on activities, services and opportunities for the Irish diaspora in France through its website, and any media channels including social media.
As a not-for-profit association, Irish in France will rely on revenue generated through annual membership subscriptions, sponsorship, and other fundraising events. It will also seek funding from the Emigrant Support Programme administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Ireland, and other funds available to the Global Irish.
