The Society host two Open Meetings each month throughout the year and indeed, it is the only genealogical organisation in Ireland providing such a high level of service to its members and the wider community.

These meetings are designed to meet the needs of our members in two distinct ways, for example, the Society provides an evening lecture programme with specially invited guest speakers who are experts in various aspects of genealogical, heraldic or historical research and, in addition, a morning informal discussion group to share research tips and problems.
