Céad Míle Fáilte
The Christchurch Irish Society extends a warm welcome to all, be they Irish by birth or affinity, and to their whānau and friends!
Join us in celebrating all things Irish.
We are a diverse community and our interests reflect those of our membership.
Throughout the year we run a variety of events in and outside our clubrooms in Spreydon. We have a number of clubs affiliated to the society and also a special relationship with Irish clubs operating outside of the Society umbrella, such as the GAA. We provide useful information and timely updates to our diverse membership, with our online presence and a newsletter for those members not online.
We aim to promote understanding and development of Irish culture while fostering bonds of friendship with other Irish communities throughout New Zealand. We strive to promote friendship and support within the Irish community in Christchurch, and to provide a place where Irish people and their friends can meet and socialise.
