Laois Africa Day 2021

Today see’s the launch of Laois Africa Day 2021. Although restrictions on physical gatherings will be in place due to public health measures, preventing the holding of in-person events to mark the occasion, our social media channels will facilitate virtual celebration and reflection until it is possible to meet once again in person.

Over the coming days, we will be sharing reflections from a number of African communities in Laois, and people of African descent, as a means of painting a picture of contemporary experience and identity among the community.

We are also delighted to announce that Laois County Council in partnership with Laois African Support Group, supported by Irish Aid at the Department of Foreign Affairs will be facilitating a number of virtual events to mark #LaoisAfricaDay2021.
