Combined Irish Regiments Association.
Combined Irish Regiments Association.

The present day COMBINED IRISH REGIMENTS' OLD COMRADES ASSOCIATION

 

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 glorious 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 storied 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. 

 

Our Annual Parade this year will take place on:

Sunday 18TH June 2017.

Form up in King Charles Street from 945am.

 

Our next Quarterly Meeting will be held at 12 noon on: 

 

SUNDAY 15TH OCTOBER 2017. 

 

The full calendar of events can be found here.

 

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