Irish Literary Society cover
Mission The object of the Society is to promote the study of Irish literature and allied artistic forms and to provide a forum for intellectual and social activities in connection with these interests.
Description We are a literary society open to all. The ILS monthly lecture series runs from September until May. The series includes the annual Noel O'Connell Memorial Lecture, which is run in partnership with the Irish Texts Society, an early off-shoot of the ILS. Lectures cover a wide range of topics, some specifically literary or historical, and some of more general cultural interest.

Events in the 2016-17 season have included Sebastian Barry, Donal Ryan, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, literary walks, Jess Kidd, a broadcast collaboration with RTE.
Founded 1892
Products Membership of the Society is open to all and covers admittance to all our events. Non-members are always welcome and can pay for individual tickets via our website or at the door. Membership opens in July and closes in February every season. The season runs from September to June.
