The ICA is the largest membership organisation of women in Ireland. Fun, friendship and support are at the heart of everything we do. Started in 1910 the ICA has been a common factor in the lives of Irish women for the last hundred years in our largest cities and in our smallest villages. We meet in 560 Guilds all over the country and each Guild is autonomous. Our members determine the annual activities of the Guild and the members input means that each Guild suits the interests of its own members.
Some Guilds are very involved in crafts and art, others focus on trips and outings others get very involved in the national competitions and contests. Whatever your interest, the ICA has a Guild nearby which you can join to learn a new skill or simply to meet new people
