African Liberation Day, commonly known as Africa Day in Ireland is celebrated by many African communities around the world. It is a permanent mass institution in the worldwide Pan African Movement. The day is observed in many African countries and events includes:

  • Formal gatherings with panel discussions.
  • Speeches by political and social leaders.
  • Special lectures.
  • Rallies featuring cultural entertainment, poetry, and speakers.

In Ireland the day is commemorated mainly by African embassies in form of lecture and Irish Aid organises a reception and public outdoor event, where people are invited to attend and participate showcasing African cultural groups, music and the work of Irish NGOs in their efforts to tackle global inequalities and injustices.
