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.
