Professor Frixos Joannidis originally from Cyprus, was one of the first Greeks to have settled on the island. In Ireland he worked as a professor of engineering at University College Dublin and took over duties as the Consul of Cyprus until the establishment of the Cypriot Embassy in Dublin. He had been one of the founders of Irish-Hellenic Society (1962) Hellenic Community οf Ireland (1964), Greek Orthodox Community (80s) and the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation in Dublin (1994). At the same time, he was the first Modern Greek language teacher to Greek children before the establishment of the Greek School of Ireland (2003).
We would like to inform you that as part of the school program we have successfully started family classes aiming to support bilingual families.
In addition, for the first time we are introducing adult classes during the summer period. The classes will be complimented with participation through Skype.

Dear members and friends of the Hellenic Community of Ireland
The Project committee of Kilwarlin Moravian Church’s ‘Finding Zula’s Hollow’ Project, have great pleasure in inviting you, your friends and the whole of the Hellenic Community of Ireland to a day of discovery. It will be held at Kilwarlin Moravian church just outside Hillsborough, Co. Down.
On Saturday 11th May 2019, from 12:45 – 3:30pm, we will be ‘Discovering the Secrets of Zula’s Hollow’.
The National Lottery Heritage fund, and Lisburn and Castlereagh City council have generously funded a one-year project to seek to uncover the secrets that have been hidden or obscured, some for nearly 180 years.
We are coming to the end of the initial searching; archaeologists, hydro geologists, historical researchers and willing volunteers have investigated high and low and we are ready for the conclusions.
Through pictures, videos, stories, questions and answers and an actual tour of the Historic Battlefield Garden, you will be treated to the story of Rev. Basil Patras Zula and the little bit of Greece that now inhabits Co. Down. Focusing us on the Battle of Thermopylae in 480BCE and what led a Greek Chieftain, fresh from escaping the siege of Missolonghi in the Ottoman wars to come to Kilwarlin Co. Down, revitalize a dying church and build a unique historic garden. A fascinating look at heritage and living history among us.
We will be starting with light lunch and refreshments.
To book your place, RSVP to Peter Dornan (email: email@example.com).
