Welcome to The Irish Association

The principal objective of the Irish Association is the promotion of communication, understanding and co-operation between all the people of Ireland, both north and south. The Association is non-party political and non-sectarian in character. We draw members from both parts of the country. We run regular meetings of members in Belfast and Dublin, organising lectures and conferences with speakers drawn from public life across the island.
