EMBASSY OF IRELAND
The Embassy of Ireland has been situated in 17 Grosvenor Place since Christmas day 1949. The Irish Embassy represents the interests of the Government of Ireland in Britain and provides services to the large number of Irish citizens living here. During the First World War, hundreds of thousands of Irishmen from all parts of the Island of Ireland and all political and religious persuasions fought in British uniform and some 49,000 lost their lives. Ambassador Daniel Mulhall's participation at the 2014 Remembrance Sunday ceremony, including the laying of a laurel wreath at the Cenotaph, marked an important new chapter in honouring the memory of the thousands of Irish men and women who fought and died in the First World War.
Ambassador Mulhall kindly attended the launch of the Pilot Competition, sat on the 2014 & 2015/16 Poetry Competition Judging Panel, and provided content on Irish War Poets for the Never Such Innocence resource.
