Africa Day, which falls on 25 May annually, is the official day of the African Union and marks African unity.  In Ireland, events to mark Africa Day, celebrate African diversity and the cultural and economic potential of the continent are held around the country. Africa Day also represents an important opportunity to raise awareness of the progress which is being achieved in development, focusing the lens very much on the development challenges which remain.  For further information on Africa Day, visit:
