On August 24, in the heart of Dublin, in one of the most emblematic places on the banks of the River Liffey, near the Ha’penny Bridge, six flags of Moldova were hoisted for a week.
According to the representatives of the Embassy of Moldova in Ireland, this initiative also pays tribute to the largest community of Moldovan citizens in Ireland, who lives in Dublin and its suburbs and who are employed in various sectors of the Irish economy.
The initiative, launched by the Irish Embassy, was supported by the mayors of Dublin, Cork, Limerick, and Blanchardstown, where Moldovan citizens live permanently or temporarily, “who are a strong bridge between the two countries.”
On June 11, the President of Moldova, Maia Sandu met with the Ambassador of Ireland in Moldova with her residence in Bucharest, Paul McGarry.
“We agreed to think about a collaboration in the field of attracting the diaspora at home, Ireland having a vast experience in this regard,” said Maia Sandu.
According to the Moldovan Ministry of Foreign Affairs, “the countries will make a joint effort to support the Moldovan community in Ireland, which is a bridge in our bilateral dialogue and which brings an essential contribution to the well-being of both states.”
