mcdsmallMuslim-Christian Dialogue Workshop
How Muslims and Christians in get on with one another will have a major impact on the process of integration that is happening in Ireland as a result of the immigration that has taken place over the past decade or so. According to the 2011 census there are now 50,000 Muslims in Ireland and no doubt when a breakdown of census figures becomes available later this year it will show that at least one third of these are Irish citizens either by naturalisation, birth or origin. 

Muslims are a permanent part of our community.   It is therefore, important that we all get on well together, and that we have mutual respect for each other in spite of cultural and religious differences. If we can do this we will have gone a long way towards having an integrated community.

This however is not the case and with a brief summary of the first few years of the DRC's road to independence this myth can be quite easily shattered.
