Within Ireland, we are part of the national network of Alliances Françaises with our main centre, in Dublin, one of the largest in Europe.
We have been in existence in Waterford since 1947, as a non-profit organisation, and continue to adhere to the central idea of promoting French language and culture beyond the borders of France. Our longevity in the southeast of Ireland is a testament to the ongoing interest in the language and the work of local Francophiles, generously sharing their knowledge.
Any Alliance established abroad is an independent association and adheres to local law. All Alliances Française are apolitical and nondenominational and work on the principal of democratic governance.
