The present day 



is a direct descendant of one of the first Regimental Associations, that of the disbanded 18th Royal Irish Regiment, which was formed in London by the late Charles Prior during late 1922/early 1923. 


Today, the main aim of the Association is to preserve the names and honour the deeds of all the brave and loyal Irish Regiments and our major focus is the Annual Parade, which is held at the Cenotaph in June each year. We welcome those who have served right across the Irish Regimental family to join us on that day.


On this website, we shall continue to share the history of the Irish Regiments, with particular focus on their role during the First World War, which led directly to the foundation of the Association. 


We look forward to seeing you on parade or at an Association meeting in the near future.
