About Us

LagunCARA is the official Irish/Basque community association in the Basque country (Euskadi). CARA means "friend" in Gaelic as does "Lagun" in euskera, hence

The Association, founded in 2003, aspires to being a model of social integration, a forum for the interaction of people in the Basque Country with interests in Ireland, as well as people in Ireland with interests in the Basque Country.

LagunCARA is by nature neutral in political and religious terms, aiming to be an open community characterized by heterogeneity, plurality and capacity for ambivalence.
