The Medal Society of Ireland was founded in 1986. The society promotes and supports the collecting and study of medals, badges, arms and armour and militaria in their various collecting forms, with a special emphasis on Irish and Irish related material. Areas covered include:
The Society produces a quarterly Journal, which contains articles, many of them illustrated, on these subjects. As many members have wider interests, features on foreign awards are also included from time to time. The Medal Society of Ireland is happy to accept for publication in the Journal articles of interest to the membership, from both members and non-members.
Society meetings are held quarterly in Dublin, the dates and venues for which are announced in advance in the society journal and on the society website.
The Society is currently inviting applications for membership. Annual subscription is €20 (Stg £18 or US $28) for adults and €10 (Stg £9 or US$14) for those aged 16 years and under.
