Nepal Ireland Day 2019, Farmleigh House, Dublin

We had a wonderful day on Sunday 7th September as we celebrated Nepal Ireland Day 2019 in Farmleigh House, Dublin.

We danced and sang in the Nepalese and Irish traditional style. Both nationalities are warm, open and celebrate in similar ways. Food also plays a celebratory role in these occasions although there are differences in the type of food. However Irish cuisine is generally  rapidly changing and becoming much more international, with the inclusion of lots of variety in spices and rices.

During the afternoon at Farmleigh House we were able to talk to the public about our mission. We also had the opportunity to sell our beautiful handicrafts, which are made by the artisans we know and work with in Nepal.
