Society for Irish Latin American Studies
On 28 April 2016, a memorandum of understanding was signed between the Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies, UCC and the Society for Irish Latin American Studies. This agreement saw the Society forge close links with the Department through a number of different collaborative initiatives. As part of this collaboration, UCC hosts an annual Society for Irish Latin American Studies public lecture.
January 2017 saw the inauguration of the Irish in Latin America exhibition, a joint initiative between SILAS and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. On this occasion, we welcomed President Michael D. Higgins, Patron of the Society for Irish Latin American Studies, to open the exhibition.
