Africa Day in Farmleigh at the SLIP stand

Africa Day 21st May at Farmleigh, Phoenix Park, Dublin.

This year the Sierra Leone Diaspora with the support of the Honorary Consul Joe Manning made a tremendous effort to bring a taste of Sierra Leone both in food and culture to the stall on Africa Day.

Delicious jollof rice, spiced chicken and authentic cassava leaf were served up by the hard working smiling women!  The food had been cooked in the morning and was fresh and ‘sweet pas all’!

Crafts on display included gara cloth, many types of jewellery, T-shirts with SL emblem, flags, baskets and many more items.

There was dancing and singing of the national anthem.

The enthusiasm and fun at the stall attracted and engaged many passers-by and many good conversations were had.

This being the inaugural event for SLIP we can can surely look forward to even  more involvement next year!

Peace and Happiness on Independence Day

SLIP wishes the people of Sierra Leone peace and happiness on Independence Day 

Check out the President’s speech on the link:

The National Anthem

High we exalt thee, realm of the free;
Great is the love we have for thee;
Firmly united ever we stand,
Singing thy praise, O native land.
We raise up our hearts and our voices on high,
The hills and the valleys re-echo our cry;
Blessing and peace be ever thine own,
Land that we love, our Sierra Leone.
