Irish Association Call to Arms

by Conor O'Reilly, 27/07/2011

Are you from Ireland or do you have an interest in Ireland?
Would you like to become part of a team that regularly hosts some of the best participated and most memorable expat events in Korea?
Would you like to gain worthwhile experience in event management, public relations, or administration while working with a recognised non-profit organisation in Korea?
Can you dedicate a few hours of your time every month towards Ireland and Irishness?

Well then…
The Irish Association of Korea needs you!
The Irish Association of Korea is looking for volunteers who are willing help out in a number of areas, including event management, public relations, hublot replica watches accounts, web-design and social networking, and administration.

You don’t need to be Irish - all you need is an interest in Ireland and a desire to help run one of the most publicly active country organisations in Korea!

The IAK consists of people from around the world who are dedicated to the promotion of Ireland and all that is Irish in Korea. The association currently succeeds in doing this by hosting regular cultural events which mostly take place in Seoul, and 2010-11 has been one of the association’s busiest years on record. The IAK is eager to continue this good work.

In 2010-11 the IAK organised:
- March 2010 Saint Patrick’s Day Festival in Cheongyecheon Seoul
- October 2010 Seoul Irish Music and Dance Festival in Insadong, Seoul – over 1,500 people attended.
- December 2010 IAK ‘An Irish Christmas – an evening of Irish Music’ in The Wolfhound Pub in Itaewon – A fundraiser which attracted almost 200 people and raised over 1 million won for the association.
- March 2011 Saint Patrick’s Day Festival in Insadong, Seoul – over 10,000 people attended and participated throughout the day.
- June 2011 Bloomsday event: A play, readings, dinner and Irish music to celebrate the works of James Joyce in Spazio Luce, Itaewon.

Forthcoming events in 2011:
- September 2011 Irish Music and Dance Festival in the new T Cube Center in Sindorim, Seoul
- Another Irish Christmas!
…and much more!

The IAK is staffed by volunteers and we are always looking for new members to help out with the organisation and promotion of our events. If you are interested in joining us, or if you would like to find out how you might be able to help please contact Conor by email:
