If you find yourself longing for home this 4th of July while you’re living overseas then worry not; you can still get your USA fix while abroad! Americans living abroad put on blowout celebrations all around the world for the 4th. Here are a few celebrations in our host countries that will get you in the American spirit.

IRELAND’s 3RD ANNUAL ‘IRISH AMERICA DAY’
Where: New Ross, Co. Wexford

Since 2012, New Ross has put on a day of celebration in recognition of the ties not only Ireland has with the United States but also New Ross itself. US President John F Kennedy’s great-grandparents emigrated from New Ross and they have immortalized his accomplishments with a JFK Memorial Statue in the city. Join New Ross on the 4th and take part in a Declaration of Independence reading at noon, heaps of activities throughout the day and fireworks starting at 10:30PM.
