Lord Mayor of Dublin

“I am delighted to be part of this year’s celebration in Ireland of the Diwali Festival of Lights

hosted by Ireland-India Council in conjunction with Dublin City Council. Diwali is one of the most popular festivals of Indian subcontinent similar to Christmas that symbolises the ‘victory of light over darkness-good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. The cultural and economic links between Ireland and India continue and the work of the Council has played an important role in strengthening our ties. I hope the event is hugely successful.”
