The Irish Australian Support Association of Queensland Inc. (IASAQ) is a Charity Organisation that looks after the Welfare of Irish Australians from all backgrounds, faiths & walks of life, here in Queensland. We are funded by the Irish Government under the Emigrant Support Programe from Department of Foreign affairs and Trade. We have sister organisations in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth which along with the Irish Embassy in Canberra, the Consulate in Sydney and the Honorary Consulate in Perth, provide continent wide access to information and supports for the Diaspora in Australia.
Our aim is to support the Irish community in Queensland where possible, in times of need or distress. They may require help in accessing services, need information for newly arrived, require a new Irish passport, or need support if they find themselves in a tricky situation. We endeavour to do all that we can to assist.
We have regular Senior's and Mother’s Group meetings that take place and new members and friends are always welcome to join us.
Our Mother's Group meet every Monday from 10 - 12 at Whites Hill Reserve Exploration Playground, Boundary Road, Camp Hill. New Mammies & Daddies are very welcome to join the group. Please pass on details to anyone that you think might be interested in joining, or get them to call our coordinator.
Our Senior's Group, now called the Tuesday Club meet fortnightly for a homecooked lunch at our centre. The group consists of both the Irish born, and those that embrace their Irish Heritage. Trips and excursions are organised regularily and we are always looking for new friendly faces to join the group.
If you would like more information or to join, please call our coordinator.
Membership for the IASAQ is $10 for the year or you can join for six years for $50.00. Membership can be paid by
