Centre for Irish German Studies Activities 2019/20

“Exploring the Many Facets of Irish-German Relations”

Centre for Irish-German Studies, University of Limerick

Activities 2019/20

In his address to participants of the first event commemorating 90 years of diplomatic relations between Germany and Ireland in the Irish Embassy in Berlin in June of this year, Simon Coveney T.D., Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade said: “Germany today is of vital importance to Ireland. One of our biggest trading partners, inward investment, investors and sources of tourism. And politically we have never been closer as we together protect and advance the interests of the European Union. In short, partners and friends more so today than at any other time in our history. So, as we mark 90 years of our official bilateral relationship, we are determined, both Germany and Ireland, to build on what we have already achieved.” (18 June 2019). Taking our cue from his words, we at the Centre for Irish-German Studies also want to build on the considerable work we have done so far and continue to explore many of the facets of Irish-German relations for the benefit of students and the interested general public - and show the relevance of these connections.
