Irish Railway Record Society
About The Society
The Irish Railway Record Society was founded to bring together people with an interest in Ireland’s railways. The Society is headquartered in Dublin and has three branches, two in the UK (see below).
The Society is essentially a historical body, taking note of the past but observing and recording the present-day operation of the Irish railway system. The Society’s three branches, known as ‘Areas’, are located in Cork, London and Manchester, each of which independently arrange their own area meetings.
