Join up:

If you are interested in joining the Society you can purchase membership via our shop from June to January, or sign-up in person at one of our monthly meetings. Our members come from all walks of life and include artists, poets, actors and academics. We encourage members to share their interest in Irish culture and to this end we organise social events throughout the year which range from theatre trips, to exhibitions, to archive visits.

New faces are always welcome and we are particularly keen to expand our student membership over the coming year. Student membership is available for full-time undergraduate students on presentation of a valid student ID card. Non-members are welcome to attend any of our public events, tickets can be purchased online or at the venue.

If you wish to pay for membership via a standing order form please download the form below. Alternatively visit the shop to purchase online:
