Muslims in Ireland

This chapter discusses the first Muslim organisations and mosque communities established in Ireland before mass immigration began in the mid-1990s. Starting with the first Muslim organisation, the Dublin Islamic Society, established by South African students in 1959, the chapter illustrates how an initially local initiative was increasingly connected to transnational networks such as the Muslim Brotherhood in order to secure funding for the expansion of their activities and the purchase of adequate mosque space. The Dublin Islamic Society, renamed to the Islamic Foundation of Ireland in 1990 in order to demonstrate its role as representative Muslim umbrella organisation, also acts as patron of the two Muslim primary schools in Dublin, the first of which was established in 1990s and the second in 2001.
