Hindu Cultural Centre Ireland (HCCI) was launched in August 2007 with a view to create an Indian Cultural Centre in and around Dublin . The Cultural Centre will provide a platform for the community to practice and promote Indian culture. The Cultural Centre will be broadly based covering various important aspects of Indian culture viz. music, languages, drama, yoga, religion, etc. It will also provide a place of worship, Mandir, need for which has been long felt. Through awareness and practice of our culture it will be possible for us and our children to integrate with the Irish community without losing our identity. Such a cultural centre will be accessed by everyone in society, Indians and non-Indians alike.
