The Coventry Irish Society is proud to be supported by the Emigrant Support Programme, which supports Irish communities overseas.
The Irish Government has set out a new strategy for the Irish Diaspora. This strategy covers the years 2020-25 and embraces all emigrant communities across the world, including Coventry's Irish community.
3 key points in the strategy that will affect our community are:
1- Ireland will hold a referendum on extending the franchise to allow citizens outside the country to participate in presidential elections.
2- Ceremonies will be introduced to welcome new citizens who gain citizenship through receiving foreign birth registrations.
A second lockdown was announced by the British Government on 5th November 2020. The government have said it will last 4 weeks until the 3rd December 2020.
The CIS offices will be closed until Lockdown is over.
Staff are still working and you can reach us on 02476 256629 or email@example.com if you need any help.
Please stay safe during this time.
The Coventry Irish Society, St. Finbarr's and local schools have been working to provide care packages for vulnerable members of the community. At the height of the Spring Lockdown, we were delivering 100 packages a week. The project is supported by the Emigrant Support Programme and the National Lottery Community Foundation
