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.

Newsletter 2020

Like every year in our Newsletter, we have in our Newsletter 2020, too, an interesting review on the activities in 2019 and an exciting lookout on our year of events 2020. With the highlight of the great project around the irish playwright John Millington Synge in May.

The corona pandemic has left behind skid marks, too in the club life of our society. So all events im March, April and May had to be cancelled. And too the planned excursion to UNO City of Bonn at the beginning of September had to be scrubbed.

As a little substitution a “Water-level report Corona Ireland and more” (“Wasserstandsmeldung Corona Irland und mehr”)  was send out and will be send out at least up to September while this time. With the latest Corona-data and other interesting news from Ireland 


But starting at the end of September we want to dare a new start. Fitted to the modified framework conditions.


In future, we will let go our events not only as events of presence but provide too to those, who are interested in, an opportunity to follow our events by video meeting. The board has decided to use for this purpose the application “Zoom”. Therefore in the invitation, that will be send out  by post or by E-Mail, like heretofore, will be named a Link, amongst that the joining to such a meeting can take place..

Therefore the user must not apply an own account at “Zoom”, but has only to download the program at the first joining. Than it all runs as described in the short instruction below. If there is already a “Zoom account” as part of the Corona restrictions, this account can certainly be used here too.

The exact data of the particular meeting i.a. Meeting-Id and if any Meeting-Password will be given in an special inviting mail.

Here is the short instruction for joining:

Short instruction: Joining/Beitreten

But there is still to swallow a pill in our club life: From Januar 2021 on the representative rooms of the Oxford Club Bonn are no longer available for our events. 

The board is searching to an alternative location and is sure to find a solution. The board will present it latest at the members annual general assembly in September.
