Wexford County Council Press Release – Thursday 17 May, 2018.
On Friday, 25th May, 2018 Wexford’s first ever Africa Day will be celebrated at The Presentation Centre, Enniscorthy, from 12.00 to 2.30 p.m.
This is a free lunchtime event for all to enjoy and is being hosted by Enniscorthy Municipal District in association with Wexford Local Development. The programme will involve speakers, photography, music, food and a living library of experiences to be shared by all.
Spearheaded by Irish Aid, Africa Day also offers a chance to take stock of the unique cultural and economic links between Ireland and this hugely diverse continent. Africa Day is not just an acknowledgement but a celebration of the continuing contribution of the African diaspora to all aspects of daily life in contemporary Ireland.
People from all over Co. Wexford are encouraged to engage with the Africa Day celebrations and to experience the cultures of these new vibrant communities as they embed into and become a welcome and integral part of everyday Irish society.
