Africa Day 25th May 2011

Africa Day, initiated by the African Union and supported by Irish Aid since 2008, falls on the 25th of May every year. To celebrate Africa Day, there will be a weeklong series of events in Dublin, Limerick and Galway with African music, dance, films, history, educational activities, sport and art taking place from the 21st – 29th of May. While celebrating the African communities living in Ireland, Africa day also aims to raise public awareness of Irish Aid, the Irish government’s overseas development programme. Africa day programmes are available to download from the Africa Day homepage.
