"Sujan" is one of the oldest Bengali cultural and social groups in Ireland. We are a social non-profit organisation focusing on promotion and celebration of Bengali culture, language, music, arts and social activities within the expatriate Indian community across the Republic of Ireland.

Our journey began in 2001 when Sujan celebrated its inaugural Saraswati Puja with just 17 attendees. In the same year, it marked the establishment of the first Bengali cultural society in Ireland by celebrating its first Durga Puja.

After an eventful 22-year journey, Sujan Bengali Association of Ireland is now proud to stand as the largest Bengali community in Ireland, hosting 6-7 events that encompass both cultural and sporting activities. The association has cultivated a vibrant online presence through social media and frequently garners media coverage in both Ireland and India.

Our key objectives revolve around preserving, promoting, and celebrating Bengali culture, heritage, and the welfare of the Bengali community.

  • Cultural Preservation: Promoting and preserving our culture, traditions, language, art, music, dance, and literature among both Indian immigrants and subsequent generations.

  • Community Building: Fostering a sense of community and camaraderie among people living in Ireland.

  • Education and Awareness: Organising events, workshops, and educational programs to raise awareness about Indian culture and history, especially among younger generations.

  • Language Promotion: Encouraging the use and learning of the Indian languages among Indian youth.

  • Cultural Events: Organising cultural festivals, music and dance performances, art exhibitions, and literary events to showcase our heritage and talent.

  • Networking and Advocacy: Building networks and collaborating with other cultural and community organisations, as well as advocating for the interests and rights of Indian people.

  • Cultural Exchange: Facilitating cultural exchange programs, intercultural dialogue, and collaborations with other communities to promote understanding and appreciation of Bengali culture.

  • Celebrating Festivals: Celebrating Bengali festivals like Durga Puja, Diwali, and Bengali New Year (Pohela Boishakh) with enthusiasm and traditional customs.

  • Language and Literary Activities: Organising book clubs, language classes, and literary events to promote Bengali literature and intellectual discourse.
