It was with great sadness, that we learnt from his family that Petros Florides, a founder member both of our own Society in 1962, and of the Hellenic Community of Ireland in 1964, and a great friend to all of us, died in Athens on Monday, 30th October, last. RIP.
We extend our condolences to his wife, Despina, and to all his family.
Full details of the arrangements for the funeral of our dear friend are attached below.
Unfortunately, it will not be possible to live stream the service from Trinity Chapel.
Paddy Sammon, President.
Welcome to the Irish Hellenic Society
Established in 1962, the Irish Hellenic Society promotes social gatherings of an informative nature for anyone with an interest in Hellenic and Irish influenced cultures and peoples, both ancient and modern.
The objectives of the Society are to develop social and cultural relations between the Irish and the Greeks and to promote the mutual understanding of Greek and Irish culture through lectures and other events.
Meetings take place on Wednesdays towards the middle of each month at 7.30pm in the United Arts Club, 3 Upper Fitzwilliam Street, Dublin 2 from October to May. Typically, they have an illustrated talk, and discussion, followed by an informal chat in the congenial surroundings of the United Arts Club bar.
International speakers are invited to our more formal annual inaugural meeting held alternately in Trinity College Dublin and University College Dublin.
