How European networks of the Muslim Brotherhood have played a leading role in organising Muslims in Ireland is demonstrated in this chapter. The major Sunni mosque organisation, the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland (ICCI), established 1996, is funded by the Maktoum Foundation whose patron is the deputy ruler of Dubai. The ICCI is based in a large South Dublin mosque complex and heads a network of different mosques in Dublin and other cities of the country and convenes the Irish Council of Imams, a body comprising representatives of imams from around the country. It also hosts the secretariat of the European Council for Fatwa and Research, an influential institution developed by the Qatar-based Egyptian scholar Yusuf Al-Qaradawi (b. 1926) to develop Islamic jurisprudence catering for the specific needs of Muslim minorities in Europe (fiqh al-aqalliyyat).
