The civic celebration of Diwali is a spectacular event in Ireland that encompasses and invites members and peers from across communities to share the joys and wondrous Diwali celebration with community leaders, and leading personalities from businesses, academics, and politics across Ireland.

Diwali is one of the most popular festivals of India that symbolises the victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. Diwali is similar to Christmas, over 1.3 billion people celebrate Diwali in India and, with the conjunction of Dublin City Council, we are celebrating Diwali- Festival of Lights in Ireland since 2008.
