Cead Mile Failte! Welcome!

The Deutsch-Irische Gesellschaft e.V. in Bonn is a society of people with the mutual goal

to promote contacts between Irish and German in a European context.


To impart

the knowledge about

  • Irish culture
  • History and
  • Society

beyond the stereotype of folklore and pubculture and to give insights to current developments of the modern Ireland.

It is political neutral but not apolitical.

For those members, who have not the ability to participate in this online-inquiry because of technical reasons, to the letter there is attached  a separate sheet with the members inquiry to fill it out by hand and to send it back by letter.
