A Message from Ambassador Vickers
As Canada's Ambassador to Ireland, I am honoured to be the Patron of the Irish Canadian Society. I find members of the society share a unique friendship and understanding of the ties that bind our countries together.
Their professionalism, warmth and kindness provide an atmosphere of being “home” regardless of whether you hail from Canada or Ireland. The Society's many and diverse activities not only provide great enjoyment but also contribute greatly to the morale and pride of the Irish Canadian community here in Ireland. To the Canadians presently residing in Ireland, I encourage all of you to consider becoming a member of the Society.
Canadians living in Ireland, Irish who have lived in Canada and those planning to visit may wish to take advantage of the Society’s website at www.irishcanadiansociety.net The site promotes awareness of Irish and Canadian cultures and provides a great deal of useful information.
I especially appreciate ICS's support of other Irish Canadian groups working to promote trade and tourism opportunities between our Countries. The society strengthens Irish-Canadian cultural and educational ties and promotes a greater knowledge of Canada.
I am grateful to the Society for its support of our work here at the Embassy.
