About Irish Network-Dublin
Irish Network-Dublin (IN-Dublin) will be the first group affiliated with Irish Network-USA to be established outside of the United States. IN-USA is the umbrella organisation which currently links IN chapters in 19 different cities across the US. It allows members of the networks to connect with their peers and to develop relationships that will foster success in their business, economic, cultural and sporting ventures. The mission of IN-USA is to bolster business opportunities and economic development between the United States and Ireland; to support and encourage Irish Arts and Culture; support the efforts of local Irish organizations and associations and to serve as a conduit between newly arrived Irish immigrants and their communities in Member cities and states.
Our mission for IN-Dublin is to connect and communicate with all of the US-based chapters and provide a means by which all IN members across the US can feel more connected to Ireland. We will work to promote and facilitate business opportunities across the Atlantic and provide a platform on which transatlantic relationships can be built and nurtured. IN-Dublin will provide access for all of its members in Ireland to the larger IN network across the US, of which there are currently approximately 3,500 members. It will be open to any IN members to attend events in other cities where an IN chapter is established and connect with members in any of those cities if they are travelling for business or pleasure. IN-Dublin will provide a place for Irish people returning home having lived in the US to come together and share experiences of living in the US and relocating back home to Ireland. It will also serve as a support system to any Irish professionals looking to move the US, connecting them to individuals in the US who can mentor and guide them, helping them to be better prepared for the transition before they leave Ireland. Through mentoring programs, networking, cultural and social events, we provide a means by which the Irish diaspora are supported while they are living and working in the US and as they return home to Ireland.
