2021-2022 Trócaire Annual ReportLearn More
Stay up-to-date with Trócaire's work overseas, get news on key global social justice issues, and find out about our latest campaigns in Ireland and how you can get involved.
As the world prepares to celebrates St Patrick’s Day, here in Trócaire we wanted to celebrate something uniquely Irish – our generosity.
Ireland is the most charitable country in Europe and the second most generous nation worldwide, which was no surprise to us here in Trócaire.
Recently a report by the Charities Aid Foundation ranked Ireland 2nd globally in terms of the percentage of the population that gives money to charity each month, volunteers time to charity, and helps strangers.
Ireland was the highest ranked European country and second globally, just behind the United States. Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom make up the top five.
Every year Trócaire is humbled by the generosity and support we get from families, communities and parishes around the country not only during our Lenten campaign but throughout the year.
Thank you & Happy St Patrick’s Day!
