President Michael D. Higgins paid tribute to the thousands of Irish missionaries transforming lives, and
communities around the world at the Misean Cara AGM in the Milltown Institute in Dublin yesterday. With an audience of
140 missionaries from Ireland, the UK, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Australia, delegates discussed the
improvements their work are having for the poor and marginalised, and debated plans for the future.
President Higgins has long been an advocate of the work of missionaries, calling them ‘Ireland’s original pioneers
in Africa’ during a recent official visit to Malawi. Missionaries remain on the frontline of Ireland’s development aid
programme with support from Irish Aid through Misean Cara.
