A short introduction of Eire Dialogue:

Eire Dialogue is established in Dublin in 2010 and is a sister charity of Dialogue Society, with the aim of advancing social cohesion by connecting communities, empowering people to engage and contributing to the development of ideas on dialogue and community building. It does this by bringing people together through discussion forums, courses, capacity building publications and outreach. It operates nation-wide with regional branches across Ireland. It was founded by Irish Muslims of multi cultural backgrounds inspired by the teachings and example of Muslim scholar and peace advocate Fethullah Gülen. Eire Dialogue is not a religious or ethnic organisation. It aims to facilitate dialogue on a whole range of social issues, regardless of any particular faith or religion. It stands for democracy, human rights, the non-instrumentalisation of religion in politics, equality and freedom of speech.
