Dublin Viking active member of Euromeet
Euromeet is an ad hoc group of European clubs that were founded in 1980. The group has met every 18 months for over twenty years; the meetings are hosted in rotation by each of the constituent clubs. The purpose of Euromeet is to further Rotary ideals with special emphasis on building friendships across international boarders within Europe. Euromeets provide wonderful occasions to meet up with old Rotarian friends and to meet new ones.
The last Euromeet was hosted by Dublin Viking in September 2011. The visiting clubs included clubs from England (Ashby de La Zouch Hastings), Belgium (Antwerpen-Heideland), Netherlands (Gorssel-Zutphen), Germany ( Gronau-Euregio), Sweden (Lund- St Knut), Findland (Turku-Sirkalla)
