Guinean Association in Ireland
The Guinean Association in Ireland was established to:
- facilitate its members to meet
- develop and reinforce the friendship and fraternity between its members
- promote the culture of Africa and in particular that of the Guinean people
- facilitate the integration of its members into Irish communities
- defend the moral and material interest of its members
- and, in the case of a death of one of its members, to send the body of the member back to Guinea for burial
The funds of the association can be used to organise African and Guinean cultural events in Ireland; to celebrate national Guinean feasts in Ireland; to support its members' individual needs; to support local projects in Guinea; to conduct sports activities for members; and to repatriate the bodies of deceased members.
Any Guinean or foreign national without a criminal record who pledges to abide by the Association's rules and regulations can apply for membership. The application should be addressed to the President of the Assoication and must be accompanied by a non-refundable €5 membership fee.
The Guinean Association in Ireland has been an NCP member since March 2010.
