Dublin History

Dublin Federation was founded in October 1947 in conjunction with Wicklow. The merger of five Dublin Guilds and two from County Wicklow continued until 1951 when Wicklow left. In 1952 we incorporated two Guilds from Kildare and increased our guilds to 18.

Dublin Federation is one of the oldest in the country and its colourful history is well documented. Over the years we were involved in matters relating to pollution, the high costs of school books, protested about city rates. This all happened in the1960’s and these issues are just as relevent to-day.

We studied the outcome of the research on the status of women and concerned ourselves with the “Safety for Women”. We have been involved in every stratum of issues that impacted on family life in those years when there were no government agencies policing these. Dublin members have been represented on a number of national committees.
