Ireland is fortunate to enjoy special ties of kinship and history with Aotearoa New Zealand and with the many New Zealanders of Irish heritage.
From our shared commitment to the United Nations, climate change, peacekeeping and development assistance, to the similarities we share as small island states with open economies and trade, as well as our strong traditions of music, sport, dance and literature.
Ireland has played an important and positive role in New Zealand's history, and we are excited to be collecting and sharing the stories and history of the Irish in Aotearoa New Zealand.
