Africa Day 2019 Festivities Draw to a Close

25th June 2019

We’d like to say a huge thank you to the thousands who attended Africa Day 2019 festivities throughout the country over the past number of weeks. The nationwide programme of free family-friendly events to mark Africa Day 2019 and highlight Ireland-Africa connections has now drawn to a close.

Supported by Irish Aid at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, this year’s Africa Day programme centred on partnerships with ten local authorities in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kildare, Laois, Limerick, Meath, Waterford and Wexford. We’d like to say a big thank you to all local authorities and community groups who supported and organised events – ranging from workshops, performances, exhibitions, festivals, screenings and other exciting activities – making for a vibrant community based programme.

You can relive the magic from activities across the country by checking out our selection of photographs in our gallery or over on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page.
