On behalf of the Embassy in Pretoria, I would like to welcome you
to our website. I hope that you find it useful.
This Embassy represents Ireland in South Africa, Zimbabwe,
Mauritius, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Our commitment to
promote cordial relations and foster mutual understanding between
the Government and people of Ireland and each of these countries is
greatly supported by the longstanding presence of so many Irish
citizens as integral members of the community in their adopted
homes. The Irish community throughout Southern Africa is strong and
thriving. Our work is assisted by the continuing activity of
Irish associations, and the tremendous contribution of Irish
religious and NGOs, in our countries of accreditation.
While the Embassy is located in South Africa, we represent all of
you, and are here to assist with whatever queries you may
Finally, if you have any suggestions or comments, please do not
hesitate to contact
Go n-éirí an bother leat.
Ambassador Brendan McMahon.
