What is Africa Day?
Africa Day, designated by the African Union as an annual celebration of the continent’s unity, falls on 25th May each year. Celebrations to mark the day occur across the globe: in some African states, it is a designated national holiday, while in diverse cities – such as New York, London and Washington – academic gatherings and cultural showcases mark the day.
This year, in Ireland, we are celebrating the day on Sunday, May 24th at Farmleigh, Dublin.
