What We Do

The Irish Countrywomen's Association is a women's organisation with almost 11,000 members. In 2010 we celebrated our Centenary and a very long tradition of making a difference in women’s lives.

 

Fun, friendship and support are at the centre of everything that we do – but we also aim to make women’s voices heard on the issues of the day.

 

 

ICA members meet in local groups across the country - almost 700 Guilds each of which offers a varied programmes of activity including trips and visits, crafts and art, interesting speakers, competitions and a whole lot more.

 

At An Grianan, Co Louth, the ICA Adult Education College provides members and the general public with a varied programme of courses and events, as well as facilities for meetings and Conferences. To find out more and arrange a visit click here.

 

The ICA is also a force to be reckoned with in local communities, where we often work with other organisations on events, fund raising, campaigning for local services, and at national and international levels where we reflect the concerns and interests of members to policy makers and the general public.

A founding member of the National Women’s Council of Ireland, the ICA is also the Irish representative on COFACE, the European NGO that represents families at the EU, and is a long standing member of the ACWW – the Associated Countrywomen of the World - which works to improve the situation of rural women, particularly in the developing world.

ICA members meet in local groups across the country - almost 700 Guilds each of which offers a varied programmes of activity including trips and visits, crafts and art, interesting speakers, competitions and a whole lot more.  Clare ICA gulids meet monthly.

The Beginnings

The ICA was founded in May 1910 by a small group of well educated and largely Protestant women in Bree, Co Wexford. Called the Society of the United Irishwomen (UI).

 

It's aim was “to improve the standard of life in rural Ireland through Education and Co-operative effort”.

 

From the start the UI was non-denominational and non-party political, principles which continue to this day and our members are drawn from every background and shade of opinion.

 

An Grianán

Centre for Lifelong Learning

At An Grianan, Co Louth, the ICA Adult Education College provides members and the general public with a varied programme of courses and events, as well as facilities for meetings and Conferences. To find out more and arrange a visit click here.
