Bringing the community Together

A wide-range of events for all ages

The  mission of the association is to support and strengthen the Irish community in France, in all its diversity. One of the primary ways we achieve our mission is by organising a wide range of events. Events include, cultural, sporting, online, social and even a visit from Santa! Our members also benefit from a range of discounts for events run by our Advantage Partners.

Through our Faceboook Group, newsletter, Twitter and Instagram we also keep the community up-to-date on events of interest throughout France.  

St. Patrick's Day Parade

In 2018, the association organised the first ever St. Patrick’s day parade in Paris. In 2019 the parade was even bigger and better, with over two thousand people attending. In 2020, the parade had to be cancelled so in 2021 we celebrated together online. This year, we will be together celebrating Sunday, March 13th!

Cultural Outings

One of the higlights for the association was a group trip to the inaugration of the Irish Peace Garden at  the Historial Museum de la Grande Guerre, in Péronne.

A moving and fascinating day where we were warmly welcomed by the local communities.

Summer Party

A get-together before the hols, a ‘big night out’ for the community – music, dancing and chat, a great night.

Rugby Meet-ups

The six nations is a great opportunity for the community to get together. Every year we organise informal meet-ups in one of our Advantage Partners bars. This event is organised in assocation with NetworkIrlande.

Sports Day

Egg and spoon races, welly throwing, introduction to Hurling and Gaelic Football with  Paris Gaels, always a great day out for the young and the young at heart.

Christmas Party

In December 2019, H.E. Excellency Patricia O’Brien, Ambassador of Ireland to France welcomed our members to the embassy for our Christmas party, a wonderful occasion and a great turnout, despite the strikes!

Kids Christmas Party

We have a very special honourary member in the assocation who comes to see us once a year. A certain Mr. Santa Claus always delights our younger members in December with presents, good humour and the odd song. 

Online Events

We run a range of online events including, quizzes, yoga, mindfulness, interviews and online safety workshops for kids with Cybersafe Ireland.
