Irish Society (UQIS)
UQIS are hitting the ground running with a St. Patrick’s Day Launch Event in the Red Room on March 17th.
Also in the works for this year are an Irish film night, an Easter gathering with the UQ Hellenic and Russian societies, and the Twelve Pubs of Christmas in July. We hope to also host some occasional pub-nights and produce a guide to Dublin for UQ students travelling abroad to our partner universities in Ireland, Trinity College Dublin and University College Dublin. Further, we hope to foster links and friendships between students interested in studying and living in Ireland and Irish students doing their exchange at UQ. Irish Australians form the second largest ethnic group in Australia and we hope to celebrate Irish culture and strengthen the bonds between the two countries.
UQIS is a UQ Union affiliated club
