The Christchurch Irish Society extends a warm welcome to all Irish people, those of Irish heritage and those who identify as Irish

The society was established in 1948 to promote Irish culture, to support the Irish community and to strengthen the bonds of friendship between the Irish people and the people of Christchurch, many of whose descendants hail from Ireland.

There is now a thriving Irish immigrant community in Christchurch and over the coming years, as the garden city continues its path to rebuild the city, the Irish Society looks forward to welcoming many new members through its doors.
