You would be forgiven for thinking that 2021 had started off feeling like a game of ‘Fortunately…Unfortunately’! But very, fortunately, the Irish in France community is here and has a lot in the pipe in the months ahead to keep our members engaged and energized as we stay the course together during continued restrictions and as vaccination progresses through the Spring.
