A photo exhibition was held at the Phoenix Park in Dublin on Sunday to mark the 16th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relationship between Nepal and Ireland. The exhibit—titled Visit Nepal Photo Exhibition and held to commemorate Nepal-Ireland Day—also included photographs taken by Irish tourists in Nepal during last year’s earthquakes.
The event saw the presence of Sharad Raj Aran, acting Nepali ambassador to Ireland; Lord
Mayor of Dublin Brendan Carr; Dipesh Man Shakya, chairperson of Nepal Ireland Society; and coordinator of NRNA Europe Kul Acharya, among others.
Speaking during the event, Aran said, “What makes this exhibition poignant is not just the chaos captured in the photographs but also the scenic beauty of Nepal that shines through the devastation.”
“Nepal-Ireland Day helps to strengthen the bond the two nations share, to expand the mutual relationship between the people of two nations, and also to promote the Nepali arts and culture,” he added.
The event also featured cultural performances such as the traditional Panche Baaja, and renditions of Nepali and Irish songs.
