The IRISH CLUB is the Irish Community's official business, social and cultural networking group in Russia. The Club's purpose is to initiate and develop business and cultural links between Russia and Ireland through organising regular networking events.

With the support of the Embassy of Ireland and various sponsors, the Club plays an active role in the organisation of the annual Saint Patrick's Day Parade, now in its 25th year.

Our two main annual events, the Emerald Ball and the White Ball are among the most popular in the general expat community and always well attended. We endeavour to arrange regular social and business events throughout the year.

Emerald Ball 2018

This annual extremely popular event was held on March 24th at the Hyatt Regecny Hotel
Thank you all once again for an amazing night and together we make a difference! 
We had a loud and a silent auction as well as a raffle and, together,  we all raised 1:8 mln rubles for the Victoria Fund!! 
Once again a huge thanks to all our sponsors who make these events extra special for our guests and , of course, to those we have an opportunity to assist charitably.

Emerald Ball 2017 Donation

After a super Emerald Ball on March 18th, we are pleased to announce a total of two million rubles was raised from tickets sales, our generous sponsors and our auctions on the night.
The money has been distributed to our three chosen charities:

  • Big Change - 1400000, helping children navigate the education system with additional classes and various supports.
  • To Children with Love- 300000, since 1998 changing children's lives in Russian orphanages with  a range of donations and ultimately, love.

December 2016 Donation

We are delighted to announce that, thanks to our generous sponsors and guests at the recent White Ball, we were able to donate 243000 rubles to both Taganka Children's Fund and Perceptiva
From all the Club committee, we wish everyone a peaceful joyful Christmas and best of everything for 2017.

March 2016 The Big Change Donation

We are thrilled to announce that over 2 million rubles was raised for The Big Change ,our chosen charity of 2016, with ticket sales  - in excess of 600,000 rubles - from the Emerald Ball as well as support from a wide variety of generous sponsors. Without the support of all our guests, our hosts - Azimut Olympiskiy Hotel - and Ambassador Mc Daid and his team at the Embassy of Ireland, this result would not have been possible.
