The Society was established in 1994 to promote the study of genealogy and related subjects as educational leisure pursuits available to all with Irish ancestry in the community.

The society promotes an interest in genealogy by organizing open meetings, lectures, workshops, and exhibiting at relevant events in the city and county.
We are a registered Community group run by volunteers. We have two meetings a month. One meeting is usually video recorded and available to view on the member’s page.
Our members are drawn from many parts of Ireland and around the world.
