The Fingal Ethnic Network (FEN) is a countywide network of ethnic minority groups and individuals living in the Fingal County Council area. It was established by the Fingal County Council Community Office and the Fingal Development Board in 2006 and was formally launched in August 2008. Since then, it has grown to include over 20 groups representing many ethnicities who are working and living in Fingal.


The network seeks:

  • To provide a coherent and inclusive voice for ethnic groups in the area.

  • To speak as one recognised voice on matters relating to their well-being in Fingal.

The network promotes awareness of issues relevant to ethnic communities among the general public and strives to strengthen integration within the community.


Our mission is to influence all organisations that operate within the Fingal County Council, to ensure they develop coherent plans and policies that reflect the social, cultural and economic input of people from all ethnic communities represented in the Fingal area.
