25th of May is Africa Day
The Irish diaspora can be found all over the globe, and the African continent is no exception. Irish people have settled in Africa since the late 18th century, many having remained or returned there following military deployments during conflicts such as the Anglo-Boer War. In the 20th Century, many Irish people of faith made Africa their home, as they joined foreign missions in developing countries.
