It was with great pleasure that I accepted the position of President of the St Patrick’s Society of Selangor at the annual AGM in September. The Irish community and the Friends of Ireland (of which there are many) are known throughout the world for their friendly, fun and welcoming personalities and nowhere is this more true than in Kuala Lumpur.
With strong community links through the local GAA club (Orang Eire), the Irish Chamber of Commerce in Malaysia (ICCM) and the Irish Embassy under the direction of Her Excellency Orla Tunney, the newly appointed Ambassador of Ireland to Malaysia, the Irish community are well represented here in KL.
The busy Christmas season is now approaching us and the St. Patrick’s Society of Selangor look forward to sharing this with you, be it at the Ladies Lunch (date and venue TBC) or with drinks and a mince pie at our Christmas Hooley at Bar 28 (8th Dec), which we will host with our friends from the ICCM.
While you all recover from your Christmas celebrations, the committee will be gearing up for the BIG event. We are looking forward to the 2024 St Patrick’s Ball and make sure you have renewed your membership by the end of December to get your tickets or risk missing out on the ‘best ball ever!’.
President of the St Patrick’s Society of Selangor
