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


Our goal is to offer the Irish community in France an opportunity to come together and strengthen ties.

We do this by organising a range of events online and in the real world, and through our online communication on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.


A not-for-profit association (type 1901), Irish in France is funded through annual membership subscriptions, sponsorship, and other fundraising activities.

The association also receives funding from the Emigrant Support Programme administered by the Department of Foreign Affairs of Ireland and is strongly supported by the Embassy of Ireland in Paris.
