Testimonials

  • We cannot thank the Irish Support Agency enough for the incredible support they gave us during a very difficult time for our family, when our son Jason was seriously injured in Sydney. A wonderful organisation ran by people we are now proud to call our friends. Thank you so much.
    - Declan, Stephanie, Jason & Jamie Cierans
  • I will be forever grateful for the support and guidance given to me by the Irish Support Agency during a very difficult and traumatic time late last year when one of my best friends took his own life, here in Sydney. This organization is run by amazing people and is one that every Irish person here in Australia should be very proud of. Thank you for everything.
