Yesterday, Irish Ambassador Dr Vincent O’Neill hosted the annual lunch for Irish missionaries working in Kenya at his residence in Nairobi.

Over the last 100 years, Irish missionary organisations have established centres for education and health in many parts of Kenya. Among these are well known educational institutions such as Loreto College Limuru, St. Mary’s College Nairobi, St Patrick’s College Iten – and health facilities such as the Mater Hospital.

Commenting on their official Twitter feed, the Irish Embassy described the missionaries as a “great group of people who have committed most of their lives to working for disadvantaged communities across the country,” adding that they are “true Irish Ambassadors”.
