Global & Diaspora

We travel and explore. We like to know the world and we like the world to know us. We are committed to a more just and sustainable world. We are Europeans and we are global citizens. We are peacekeepers. We believe in the power of friendship, partnership and open conversation. With more than 70 million people around the world who trace their family to Ireland, we are a global people, alert to the social and cultural challenges in the world around us today.
