1. Immigration & Integration

The Living in Ireland Booklet was last published in 2009, therefore some of the information contained in the booklet has since been updated. You should check the relevant sections on the www.livinginireland.ie website and the relevant Government Departments for up to date information.  

You can download a pdf of each chapter of Living in Ireland booklet 2009 below:

2. Refugee

Country Profile: Syria 

To support the integration of Syrians arriving under the Irish Refugee Protection Programme (IRPP), Crosscare Refugee Service has produced a Syrian Country Profile. It contains information on Syria, its people and the Syrian way of life. This leaflet was designed for staff and volunteers working with Syrians. It aims to promote cultural awareness, enable communication and lead to better outcomes for these clients. 

You can download it here:
