The Irish South African Association has called on South Africans of Irish descent to make contact with them so that they can grow their knowledge base of the Irish diaspora. The Irish arrived on our shores between the mid-1800s and settled mostly in the Western and Eastern Cape. Cape Town is currently playing host to an Ireland and South Africa exhibition. A research library which explores Irish ancestry also officially opened in Cape Town this weekend. Michael O’Brien is the Chairperson of the Cape Town chapter of the Irish South African Association. “We are particularly interested in making contact with and hearing from South Africans of Irish descent, mostly they will be from mixed unions between Irish born settlers, the slaves of various denominations, Afrikaners and other indigenous groups. South Africans of Irish heritage can then apply for a certificate of Irish heritage and this will be endorsed by the Irish department of Foreign Affairs and trade under the immigrants care programme.” (Photo: Let’s go)
