The Society hosts monthly talks on the fourth Wednesday evening of each month, at the Irish Consulate in Market Street. Anybody is welcome to attend. Please see our calendar for details of forthcoming talks and other events.

Three major social events are held each year: a St Patrick’s Day Dinner in March, a Mid-Year luncheon in July/August and a Christmas Party. The Society also sponsors prizes at the various universities in Sydney, for the best work each year in Irish literature and history.

For more than 60 years the Aisling Society of Sydney has provided stimulating and friendly settings for anyone who is interested in Ireland and Australia – their history, culture, economy and destiny and their relationship with each other – whether or not of Irish descent. The Society has no political or religious affiliations. All casual visitors are welcome. You don’t even have to be Irish or Australian. And if you do come, please don’t be shy to introduce yourself.

For further information about the Society, please contact the Society’s honorary secretary, Jeff Kildea (contact@aislingsociety.org.au).

Vale Susan Ryan
The sudden death of the much loved Aisling member and councillor Susan Ryan on 27 September 2020 came as a shock to members of the Aisling Society. The society offers its condolences to Susan’s family.
