Mayo Africa Day

Mayo County Council has announced its plans for Africa Day 2022, which will include a family concert, workshops, exhibitions and much more to celebrate the occasion.

The event takes place at Claremorris Town Hall Theatre on Sunday, June 5 from 12pm to 3pm. It is a free event, and all are welcome. The celebration aims to bring many Mayo communities together to celebrate with music, poetry, art and dance.

Africa Day, which fell on Wednesday, May 25, celebrates the richness of African cultures and the contribution of people of African descent to Irish life. Africa Day celebrations are organised by Irish Aid at the Department of Foreign Affairs in partnership with African embassies in Ireland and local authorities around the country.
