Comhlámh ('co-law-ve') means "solidarity" in Irish.

Comhlámh is an Irish organisation open to anyone interested in social justice, human rights and global development issues. It's mission is to challenge society on the root causes of global poverty and inequality and empower people to demand equity in global relations. Over the past three decades, Comhlámh has pursued its objectives through:


  • campaigning for global justice and human rights at home and worldwide;

  • promoting understanding of global issues and cultures through courses, public meetings, the media, etc;

  • providing opportunities for returned development workers to meet each other, to put their overseas experience in context and to consider issues in returning to Ireland and staying involved in development work.

In line with its mission of challenging society on the root causes of global poverty and inequality, Comhlámh supports and promotes responsible, responsive overseas volunteering and provides assistance to volunteers in a long-term, ongoing commitment to development. Its HQ is in the Irish Aid Volunteering and Information Centre, O'Connell Street, Dublin 1.
