CELEBRATING THE VERY BEST OF IRELAND
The Council of Irish Counties in London (CICA) is an established organisation which has been active since 1954 and is registered at The London Irish Centre, Camden. Over the years, the organisation has had an amazing history of supporting many needy people through its great work.
We are proud to promote Ireland in London and throughout the United Kingdom we are a leading voice representing the 4 Provinces and 32 Counties of Ireland. The formation of the CICA is the affiliated Counties Association, at this time, our mission is to reach out to other counties to form representation groups or by becoming members or friends of our organisation. Through partnerships with community groups, charities and outreach projects, the CICA focuses on working together with other organisations to make a difference in people’s lives. We invite you to come and join our association to develop a strong networking group going forward to make a lasting impact within the community.
