Welcome to our website....
The present day Combined Irish Regiments’ Old Comrades Association is a direct descendant of what is believed to be the first
Regimental Association, that of the disbanded 18th Royal Irish Regiment, which was formed in London by the late Charles Prior during late 1922/early 1923.
The main aim of the Association today is to preserve the names and honour the glorious deeds of all the brave and loyal Irish
Regiments and our major focus is the Annual Parade held at the Cenotaph in June each year.
Next year's Parade will be held on Sunday 14th June 2015 and we certainly welcome anyone who has served right
across the Irish Regimental family to join us on that day in Whitehall.
Review of recent Annual Parades.
Members are also welcome to join us at our meetings, which are held
quarterly at the Civil Service Club in Westminster.
Latest calendar of events.
On this web site, we shall be continue share the storied histories of all the Irish Regiments, with particular focus on their
role during the First World War and its aftermath, which led directly to the foundation of our Association. Each month we shall be adding stories about the actions of some of the Irish Regiments.
We also look forward to keeping you up to date with news and photographs
from recent Association events and we would also be delighted to receive feedback from you.
We hope you enjoy visiting this
web site and look forward to seeing you on parade in the near future.
