The Irish Polish Society is the primary organization in Ireland for promoting integration
between Irish and Polish people. It is a voluntary, non-profit-making and non-political
organization. It has been in existence since 1979 when Pope John Paul II made his historic
visit to Ireland. The Society organizes lectures, musical events, art exhibitions, poetry and
literature readings, film shows, discussions, talks by local and visiting high profile lecturers
and social gatherings. We also celebrate the main cultural and religious festivals of both
countries. Our meetings take place at the Polish House, 20 Fitzwilliam Pl., Dublin 2. Our
committee is made up of Irish and Polish people who work together to promote the best from
each country. The committee is democratically elected each year at the Annual General
Meeting. Membership is open to all who live on the island of Ireland and have interest in
Poland and Polish-Irish relations.
