Interested in meeting Minister Fitzgerald?
We are delighted that the Minister of Children and Youth Affairs, Frances Fitzgerald T.D. will be joining us in Korea for a St Patrick’s Day programme on 13th and 14th March.
St. Patrick’s Day is one of the few country national days which is recognised and celebrated globally. The visits that our Ministers make to coincide with St. Patrick’s Day increase connections with Ireland and develop awareness of Ireland in countries and markets where we are less known as well as those where we have longstanding and deeply rooted friendships.
Minister Fitzgerald’s visit will give her an opportunity to engage with Korea, to promote Irish business in and with Korea, and to learn about what life is like in Korea for Koreans and for the Irish community here.
Given her portfolio for Children and Youth Affairs, Minister Fitzgerald would like to have the opportunity to meet members of the growing young Irish community here to learn about your experiences of life in Korea, the challenges of living so far away from home, and the experience of living and working in a different country.
To do this there will be an event at 19.00 in central Seoul on Thursday 13 March. It will be an opportunity for an informal exchange of views with Minister Fitzgerald, followed by some refreshments.
If you would like to be a part of this event please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest including your name, age, the area where you live, an email address and a phone number.
Please register your intention early, as numbers will be limited.The embassy will issue a formal invitation when they hear from you.
