The Latin American Institute of Ireland will be established to promote and strengthen relations between Ireland and Latin America.
07OCT20 – MÁLAGA – ESPAÑA.-This project is an initiative of José Antonio Sierra with the aim of strengthening cultural ties between Ireland (the country in which he lived for more than 20 years) and the different countries of Latin America as a way of mutually enriching each other, with the greatest knowledge of the different cultures, uses and customs while favoring the exchange of students, tourists, people from the cultural and artistic world.
