Jewish Heritage Europe



 Though there is evidence of a Jewish presence in Ireland in the Middle Ages (with a permanent community probably established by 1232), the number of Jews in Ireland has remained small. Today, under 2,000 Jews live in the country, mainly in Dublin. There is a Jewish Museum in Dublin and  some disused Jewish cemeteries  elsewhere in the country.
