Esther Hayden

Africa Day will be celebrated in Wexford this month as part of a national programme of events.

Last Wednesday Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, Simon Coveney launched a nationwide programme of events to mark Africa Day 2018, supported by Irish Aid.

These will include a flagship family day in the grounds of Farmleigh Estate in Dublin's Phoenix Park and regional events around the country.

In Wexford, Wexford County Council, along with Wexford Local Development, will host a 'Living Library' event. This event will see members of the African community living in Wexford share their personal stories of life in Africa, as well as their life in Ireland, with the wider community.

A celebration of African cuisine and culture will take place in Presentation Centre, Enniscorthy on Friday, May 25.
