Minister for the Diaspora Ciarán Cannon, T.D.

Welcome to the July Global Irish Newsletter.

min-cannon-small-thumbI am happy that the re-launch of the Global Irish Newsletter coincides with my recent appointment as Ireland’s Minister for the Diaspora. I am hugely excited to be taking on this role and I  have already been fortunate to meet some of the Irish community in the UK. Over the next few months I plan to meet more of you around the world so that I can promote your great work and hear your concerns.  I and my team will continue to support Irish organisations and communities around the world and I look forward to being the voice for these communities in Ireland

Is mise le meas,
Ciarán Cannon
