About Us


CARA is the official Irish/Basque community association based here in Euskadi - The Basque country. CARA means "friend" in Gaelic as does "Lagun" in euskera, hence laguncara.com

CARA is by nature neutral in political and religious terms, aiming to be an open community characterized by heterogeneity, plurality and capacity for ambivalence.

The Association, founded in 2003, aspires to being a model of social integration, rather than being a ghetto-type “Irish Club” in Euskadi; a forum for the mixing of all people in the Basque Country with interests in Ireland (and people in Ireland with interests in the Basque Country). The mission of CARA is to address all the varied wants, needs and aspirations of its members. The Association publishes a newsletter 4 times a year (for example, see: http://www.laguncara.com/images/docs/1111CARANewsletter.pdf
