Who We Are?
The Federation of Indian Communities in Ireland (FICI) is an umbrella organisation. The FICI as an apex community association may represent the voice of a majority of people of Indian origin living in Ireland. An Individual volunteer, an ethnic group /regional Indian community association, or a club that is a part of the vibrant Indian community in Ireland can join and become a formal member of FICI. This community organisation was founded by a number of like-minded organizations or individuals to come together to share their mutual understanding, benefits, and resources that are of importance not only to its esteemed members but to the greater humanity. It is a non-political, non-religious, and non-profitable organisation. Since 2018, FICI has been a registered CLG in the Companies Registration Office.
We at the FICI are determined to bring the different regional and culturally diverse Indian communities in Ireland under this umbrella organisation with the motto to show our ‘unity in diversity’ and ‘one voice for one community’. Our vision is to make FICI an Apex community organisation along with an Indian cultural hub or center of Ireland.
What Services do we Provide?

Social Inclusion and Smooth Integration
FICI helps to provide community service Programmes by seeking support from local county councils that promote social inclusion and smooth integration of immigrant members of Indian communities in Ireland into the mainstream community by allowing and advocating to maintain their own beliefs, social values, and cultural traditions irrespective of their nationality or ethnic origin.
