Combined Irish Regiments Association. Combined Irish Regiments Association.

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 welcome anyone who has served right across the Irish Regimental family to join us on that day in Whitehall.


Other dates for your diary:


  • The Opening of the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey is held on Thursday 6th November (entry by ticket only), followed by a service in St Patrick's Chapel at Westminster Cathedral.


  • Royal British Legion Parade at Whitehall on Sunday 9th November.


  • The Christmas Gathering will take place on Saturday 13th December and this should be the usual most enjoyable pre Christmas social event.   


Find a full Calendar of Association events here.


On this web site, we shall continue to 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. 


We also look forward to keeping you up to date with news and photographs from recent Association events and we would be delighted to receive feedback from you.

We hope you enjoy this web site and look forward to seeing you on parade, at a meeting or at a social event in the near future.
