Irish Pubs Global are delighted to support a major philanthropic effort in HAITI, one for the least developed countries in the world and extend a warm invitation to the opening of ‘The Irish Embassy‘ in the Irish Village of Haiti, this Arthur’s Day.
It will be the first Irish Pub in Haiti and the first bar to have beer on TAP!!!
The initiative started when the Soul of Haiti charity in Dublin got people together, including our Irish Pubs Global President, Enda O’Coineen, to help Haiti after the Earthquake. Also Conchur deBarra, our IPG President for Belgium, had the idea from his volunteer work with the Haven charity in Haiti. For good measure our IPG President in Philadelphia, Dave Magrogan of the Kildare Group, is supporting the unique venture.
The concept started as an Irish Pub called “The Irish Embassy”, it then expanded into the Irish Village with over 10 retail units at the premises in Pétionville, Port Au Prince, Haiti. Both HAVEN and the Soul of Haiti, Irish charities will be based in the Village.
With a massive number of NGOs and charities in Haiti, the idea is that the Village will be a ‘ home-away-from-home”. It will also provide a social meeting point for all involved in the rebuilding of the country – as much of the infrastructure was destroyed in the earthquake.
