Helping Irish people and people of Irish descent maintain their connections to Ireland and each other, through information and support
The second Global Irish Civic Forum took place in Dublin Castle on 4-5 May 2017
The theme of the Civic Forum was 'Communities, Connections, Conversations' and it provided an opportunity for those supporting the Irish diaspora abroad to come to Dublin to discuss their work with these communities and engage with Government. The Forum was a mixture of plenary discussions and workshops, with speakers primarily from Irish diaspora orgnasiations and also from Government, technology companies and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
The Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade have prepared an Options Paper on voting at presidential elections by citizens resident outside the State.
