The Irish Club of WA was founded in 1950, to create a hub for Irish emigrants to have a place to socialise and build a sense of community in a foreign land. Over the years, the Club has expanded its role in Western Australian society. The Club provides a venue, a pool of members, and social contacts for all of the community, not just emigrants but also those born here of Irish parents or ancestry, and indeed, the greater community, where we can all celebrate the diverse multicultural makeup of our Western Australia, and the contribution the Irish community has made, over the years.
Where once, it was a one-way trip to the Great Southern Continent, today’s Irish population in WA can travel home with great ease. To help the Irish Club maintain and re-imagine itself as the hub of Irish Culture in WA, if you have any suggestions of what you would like to see at the Club or hosted by the Club, please send us an email.
