Mapping Irish Communities study

Calling all Irish people, Irish community groups, people of Irish heritage or affinity with Ireland living in New Zealand.

The Embassy of Ireland in Aotearoa, New Zealand, has partnered with the University of Otago’s Centre for Irish and Scottish Studies who have designed two short surveys that we hope will assist in showcasing the rich Irish history we have in Aotearoa New Zealand, as well as the opportunities for future collaboration and connection.

You can access the surveys and more information here>
