Irish Aid

Trócaire and Irish Aid, the Irish Government’s programme for overseas development, have a long history of working in partnership towards our common goal of eradicating poverty and inequality across Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America.

Irish Aid Funding by Country

In 2017, Trócaire and Irish Aid entered into a new five-year partnership for long term development under its programme funding mechanism (2017-2021), and a two-year partnership for emergency response in situations of protracted, predictable and recurring crises under the Humanitarian Programme Plan (2017-18).
