Vice Consul General of Ireland in Vancouver
Proud sponsors of Lá Fhéile Bríde
The Consulate General of Ireland in Vancouver is proud to support and participate in the 2021 St. Brigid's Day Festival in Vancouver.
A large part of our role here in British Columbia is to support the Irish community and help promote Irish culture.
St. Brigid's Day, being in honour of Ireland's triple goddess and matron Saint, gives us an opportunity to celebrate the important and under-recognised role of Irish women and girls in all aspects of history, mythology and culture.
I encourage all Irish women in B.C. to participate in the 2021 St. Brigid's Day Festival Vancouver.
It will be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the achievements and stories of the women who inspire us, and for us to embrace our own power and influence as Irish diaspora women and as female role-models for those around us.
