New Social Networking Site for Global Irish Launched

A new social networking site for Irish people around the world has been unvailed. is the brainchild of Riverdance founder John McColgan, who suggested it at the Global Irish forum two years ago.

It will allow users share information, video and even link up their other social media site such as Facebook and Twitter. "Worldirish offers an opportunity for this greater global family to connect, engage and support each other-and in doing so, both help define what it is to think Irish and to reshape the future of the world irish, wherever we may be", according to the site.

Mr. McColgan says the possibilities of the site are huge. "The power to communicate... to tell your stories-tell us about your own place whether it is Angola or Antrim.

"Tell us the story of who you are and where you are in the community"
