National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of Ireland
The first known connection between the Bahá’í Faith and Ireland dates from 1848 when a doctor of Irish background treated the Báb in His prison cell in Tabriz, Iran. The 1950′s and 1960′s witnessed a steady flow of new Irish Bahá’ís with more dynamic growth experienced in the early 1970′s. The first national administrative body for Bahá’ís was established in 1972. Today the Bahá’í community in Ireland comprises people of many different backgrounds from all around the country, including a welcome sprinkling of people who have come from overseas to make their home in Ireland.
