In a sense the Bahá’ís are everyone and anyone – members of a vast world community which spans the globe from pole to pole. Bahá’ís are to be found in virtually every country in the world and are drawn from every race, every nationality and every ethnicity. Wherever they come from and wherever they reside Bahá’ís are united in a common belief that ‘the earth is but one country and mankind it’s citizens’.
There have been Bahá’ís in Ireland since shortly after the Faith began in the nineteenth century. Today there are Bahá’ís living in every part of Ireland from Cork in the south to Letterkenny in the north, from as far west as Galway and as far east as Hook Head. The Irish Bahá’í community is a diverse and welcoming one, its members striving to work shoulder to shoulder with their friends and neighbours for the betterment of their localities.
