For over 2000 years the Irish have travelled abroad for adventure, to help or be helped, and to study.
Those who returned brought back stories of different ways of thinking and life that were to influence the development of their own county.
Our centre focuses on the contribution of Irish missionaries for over 1500 years in bringing to others what Ireland had to offer and bringing back what the wider world had to offer Ireland.
Here we provide you with an opportunity to find out more about the problems, views and beliefs of people in other parts of the world, how Irish people are still interacting with them today and how you can be part of it.
We also tell you more about the IMU, the services we offer and the issues that concern us.
