Devastating earthquake in Nepal. Many Irish people love this country and its people, and perhaps the best way to assist is to donate any funds you can. There are regular updates on legitimate agencies and organisations to assist a country that gives so much. Oxfam Ireland has an appeal if you can help in any way www.oxfamireland.org. We are hearing mostly of Kathmandu and Everest BC, both of which are suffering enormously. Many other parts of this mountain state, well known to Irish climbers and trekkers, have also been devastated. 

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has put in place an emergency response team in Dublin to handle calls from citizens and concerned relatives. It said in a statement: “The Embassy in New Delhi which is accredited to Nepal is liaising with actors on the ground, including EU Member States and other international partners in Nepal. Anyone concerned about friends or family in the region can contact the Department on 014780822.”
