Irish in France


Supporting the Irish community in France

About us

Founded on February 1st, 2017, the mission of The Irish in France Association is to support and strengthen the Irish community in France, in all its diversity, and to facilitate conversations on relevant issues in France, in Ireland and with the global Irish diaspora.

The association receives support from the Irish Emigrant Support Programme but also depends on funding from its members. The Association is volunteer led and run.

Our great events and excellent discounts from our advantage partners are just some of the reasons to join. Not only that but your membership fee helps us in our mission to build and support the Irish Community in France!
