Ambassador of Ireland to Malaysia
Greetings from the Embassy of Ireland in Kuala Lumpur!
I am delighted to extend my congratulations to Dublin City Council on the occasion of the 2022 Dublin Lunar New Year Festival. Now in its fifteenth year, the Festival has another great programme of events planned in 2022.
Chinese New Year is one of Malaysia’s biggest holidays, and it is widely celebrated in the country. The uniquely Malaysian “Open House”, held as part of many different cultural and religious festivals, including Chinese New Year, encapsulates very well the spirit of the celebration: a joining together of family, friends and the wider community, and the conveying of good wishes for health, happiness and prosperity in the year ahead.
I send my best wishes to everyone celebrating the Lunar New Year, including, in particular, Malaysians in Ireland who are marking the occasion.
May the Year of the Tiger bring strength, bravery and confidence, as the Tiger symbolises in the Chinese zodiac.
