Welcome to the Ireland - Western Australia Forum

We are an organisation committed to promoting business, professional and cultural links between Ireland and Western Australia.

The focus of the Forum is on Western Australia and Ireland. Being present in WA is the important issue. Being Irish or of Irish heritage is an added bonus but not a prerequisite.

The Forum aims to have 6 speaking events (either breakfast or evening cocktail events) per year with leaders in business, government, and the professions.
