The Africa History Month Ireland is kicking off with a great event this year 2017 and we want everyone to support us in celebrating Africans Presence here in Ireland.  The Recognition of the Role of Africans in Ireland to celebrate "Africa History Month" Initiated here in Ireland since 2010 by Susuana O.M Olatunji-Komolafe in recognition of the contribution of all African that has lived or still living in the Republic of Ireland, which have played a positive role and make an impact in the society. As Africans we share history with Africans Americans, African British living here and back home as they also celebrate. To allow youth, children and young generation understand the beauty of their roots and staying strong in addressing the opportunities and challenges of being a minority in Ireland.

We are the first group here since 2010 that start to celebrate Africa History here in Ireland. This celebration is to create more awareness around African presence here in Ireland, celebrate our contribution and tell our own story. "From the horses mouth"
