Africa Day is an initiative of the African Union, which celebrates African diversity and success and the cultural and economic potential of the continent. In Ireland, events to celebrate Africa Day are supported by Irish Aid, the Government's programme for overseas development.

Funding for events associated with the centenary of the Ulster Covenant was drawn from the Reconciliation and Anti-Sectarianism Funds.
