It was a very busy weekend for The Council of Irish County Associations, with most of the officers mingling with members of business and community groups at the St Patrick's reception at the Embassy of Ireland.

The following day our chairperson, Larry O'Leary, was a guest of the Irish Navy on the LE James Joyce, docked at London Bridge. The CICA ceremonial tricolour was handed over to Lt Michael Devanny to carry at the head of the city's St Patrick's Day parade the following day. READ MORE




Two of the older members of the CICA were called to their eternal reward, since the turn of the year. Firstly we lost Maura Fitzsimons, long time secretary of the Council as well as of the Cavan Association. Maura hailed from Milltown Malbay in Clare but was involved with Cavan through her late husband who passed away many years ago. Maura was laid to rest in North London in mid January 2019.

This month we have lost one of our life presidents Joe Fryday, a native of Dundrum, County Tipperary. Joe was heavily involved with Ladies Gaelic Football and he led a full and active life, until about three weeks before his passing. Joe was in his 93rd year and his funeral will take place on 26 March 2019 in South London.



The St Patrick’s Dinner and Cabaret on Saturday 9 March 2019 was a great success for the CICA at The London Irish Centre. In the presence of The Ambassador Adrian O Neill and his wife Aisling, a wonderful meal was served by Pat and Mary Masterson with fine wines supplied by Edwin Doran of Doran Vinyards. READ MORE

The year of 2018 ended up being a wonderful year for the Council of Irish counties - London. Thanks to the support received from the Emigrant Support Programme of the Department of Foreign Affairs, we were able to run several functions and events. In October 250 people turned up at the Irish centre, to witness a wonderful show "Ceiliúradh" excellently compered by Gerry Mulomby and comprised entirely of locally based talent. It went down very well with everyone. It was great to see so many young people in the audience.
