Northern Irish Connections - About Us

At Northern Irish Connections, we’re passionate about celebrating and showcasing what makes Northern Ireland a great place to live, work, study, visit, invest and do business.

Northern Irish Connections is passionate about celebrating what makes Northern Ireland such a great place to live, work, study, visit, invest and do business.

We connect the diverse strands of the Northern Irish community abroad and engage with friends from around the globe. In short, we provide a space for our diaspora to explore and contribute to the ongoing prosperity of home.

Our passion comes with a purpose - to provide the diaspora with an opportunity to demonstrate the full potential of their talent and influence; all in the name of advancing economic prosperity and harmony in the region.

The global Northern Irish community is our greatest asset; a well of inspiration that spans continents, industries and whole fields of expertise. We’re proud to share their remarkable stories and provide genuine role models for the next generation.

Northern Ireland is of course home, but we recognise that in order to bring what the region has to offer to the world stage, it is necessary for our diaspora to pursue their talents wherever they are required.

We’re inspired by the fact that our diaspora has such a strong global entrepreneurial influence, and we recognise that this fact has led to a cadre of international investors for whom Northern Ireland is the location of choice.

Developed by Invest Northern Ireland, Northern Ireland Connections provides a network for partners from all walks of life. Domestic and international, public and private, all members share our ambition to make Northern Ireland the global player it deserves to be.

Whether you’re Northern Irish born, of NI heritage or have a strong affinity for the region, connect with us today and stay in touch with the latest developments from home.
