London Area Meetings


The London Area of the IRRS provides a welcoming forum in Southern England for those who are interested in Irish transport, particularly railways, both past and contemporary. From October to the following April, meetings are usually held in central London. Well attended and featuring interesting & expert presenters, many of whom travel from Ireland, the talks are an opportunity for our speakers to impart specialist knowledge and information.

We hold monthly meetings from October to April every year hosting illustrated talks by speakers on a wide range of Irish transport subjects.

Our updated and amended programme for the forthcoming season is attached programme 3pdf

Arrangements for the New Year to the end of the season are now finalised. Our meetings in January and February will be online only at 1900

But we plan to hold live meetings in March and April. (also available via Zoom) in a new venue, The Gallery at Alan Baxter at Farringdon, 77 Cowcross Street, Farringdon LONDON EC1M 6EL, To suit the availability of the venue, we have had to defer both meetings from the previously advertised Thursday to the Friday and start at 18.00, finishing not later than 20.45.

However, our annual Transport Collectors’ Market will not be held in 2023, but we plan to reinstate it in March 2024.

For reports of previous meetings please go to Previous Events. This illustrates the type of programme we offer and includes a report on the LONDON AREA 60TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION on Sat 5 November 2022

The IRRS also has regional meetings for its branches in Manchester, Dublin and Cork.
