Established in 1953, the Irish Society in Uganda is one of the most active societies in Uganda. The Irish Society aims to facilitate social contact between Irish people, people of Irish descent and anyone who has an interest in Ireland by acting as a network that brings people together through cultural and social events. Over the years, the society has organised a diverse range of social and cultural events. The society in particular seeks to support newly arrived and elderly members who may not necessarily have a support network in Uganda.

The highlight of the society's year is the St Patrick's Ball and related events every March, where money is raised for a host of charities operating in Uganda. For further details you can email [email protected] and follow the Irish Society on Twitter and Facebook.
