The Irish Club of Russia is Russia's leading Irish business, social and cultural non-profit organisation. Established in 1992 by a number of Irish living and working for some time and wishing to give something back to Russia, the club was formed. The Club strives to develop business links between Russia and Ireland; it is also the primary organiser of the annual Saint Patrick's Day Parade in Moscow, the annual Saint Patrick's Emerald Ball and the White Ball each winter as well as regular social and business events. The club actively supports a number of local deserving Russian charities. Irish people and companies are welcome to join the club, as well as friends of Ireland in Russia, who would like to participate in club events and activities. If you are interested in joining the Irish Club, please visit our Membership area.
Our most recent book club wasThe Master and Margarita. It is a novel by Mikhail Bulgakov, written between 1928 and 1940, but unpublished in book form until 1967. The story concerns a visit by the devil to the fervently atheistic Soviet Union. Many critics consider it to be one of the best novels of the 20th century, as well as the foremost of Soviet satires.
The summer month or as we say at home, silly season, can make it difficult to get people together but we will be back in September.
We aim to have a meeting each month. If you are interested in joiningand have any suggestions, email Dolores at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our last culture club was a ballet. We saw Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker at the Kremlin Palace. . And the Nutcracker is one of a few classics that you can see many times and still enjoy it.
