    The gentle hand of understanding
    across the water -
    the story of our mission;
    two hands over two sands
    sharing a common kinship.

    Two hands clutching quietly,
    and two hands
    keeping two lands in safety,
    the two holding the same truth
    on the same horizon, come what may.

    Mererid Hopwood, St. David's, August 2002 (transl.)

    Draig Werdd - the Welsh Society in Ireland is an organisation based in the Republic of Ireland whose mission is to raise awareness of Wales and Welsh affairs across Ireland, and to provide a social network for Welsh people living in Ireland.

    The organisation consists of individuals from differing national and cultural backgrounds who share the same concerns regarding the promotion of Welsh interests in Ireland, in response to the new era that exists in Welsh political, economic and cultural life following the establishment of the Welsh Assembly in Cardiff.

    Together with our associate organisation in Cardiff, the Wales Famine Forum (see link on right), we seek to create closer links and understanding between our two countries.  Let us know if you have any contributions to this aim.
