A great day was had by all at a very successful CICA CULTURE GOLF CLASSIC held at the Mill Hill Golf Club Friday 26 October 2018. Thankfully the early morning rain gave way to bright sunshine and, after breakfast, the teams ventured out onto the course. Peter McGeever marshalled everything to perfection. Special mention also to Tess Mcguire and Gus Casey who handled the administration throughout the day at the Mill Hill Club.

The Ceili├║radh Londain 2018 was a magical event, an amazing evening, with an array of local Irish talent. From the moment Gerry Molumby MC opened the show in front of a packed hall.

The first act was Saoirse Ni Machail, with her haunting version of Mise Eire on the Uillean pipes. This led nicely into the theme of the show with Terence O'Flaherty's self-penned "Back to Camden" who was then joined by James Carty (fiddle) and his uncle, also James Carty (flute) & Tom O Connell (box).

CORNER BOYS

During a sold-out national tour of Ireland in 2016, award winning playwright John MacKenna’s play Corner Boys was described as ‘hilariously funny, heartbreakingly sad but, above all, true to life’ by RTE Radio 1, Corner Boys is now embarking on a 2018 UK national tour, playing the London Fringe and Irish Cultural Centres around the country.

The CICA have applied for a grant to the Irish Government's Emigrant Support Programme, to assist in our efforts to promote Irish culture in London and the UK. We are delighted to report that we have received this grant and we are most grateful to the Irish Government and indeed to the staff at The Embassy of Ireland London for all their help and support. We shall in the coming months be running several cultural and networking events, so watch this space for further details



It is the role and purpose of CICA LONDON to promote Ireland: the four provinces and the thirty-two counties of Ireland. We provide a platform and a voice for each and every county of Ireland to promote their own unique character, history and special attraction. Promoting knowledge and understanding of our special heritage and culture is our fundamental aim.

The Council of Irish Counties Association serves as an umbrella organisation for overseeing the various county associations in London as well as promoting and supporting the general Irish community. We are ever grateful and appreciative of the generosity and hard work of all those active in the Irish community who make our work possible.

We actively plan and co-ordinate various activities and events throughout the year, the highlights of which are the London St Patrick's Day Parade and the Annual Council of Irish Counties Dinner Dance.

The Council of Irish Counties hold monthly meetings on the third Tuesday of each month (with the exceptions of August and December) which are held at the London Irish Centre, Murray Square in Camden. County Associations affiliated to the CICA are permitted to have a representative at these monthly meetings.

The Council also has an Executive Committee which deals with welfare and trust issues. The Executive Committee holds quarterly meetings, also at the London Irish Centre. We feel honoured to hold our meetings in such a prestigious venue as the London Irish Centre. The L.I.C. has welcomed many distinguished visitors throughout its history, including Bishop Eamonn Casey, former President Mary Robinson, former Senator Edward Kennedy, former President Mary McAleese and our most recent welcome dignitary President Michael D. Higgins.

We thank you for your interest in CICA London and welcome your involvement and active participation in future events. We are here, working for you.
