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.

Usually we hold our meetings in a central London venue but due to Covid-19, our early meetings (at least) this season will be held online. The London Area programme (including how to access online meetings) can be downloaded HERE and see the London Area’s website



London meetings are usually held in the Function Room, Calthorpe Arms, 252 Gray’s Inn Road, LONDON WC1X 8JR

At present all lectures are to be delivered on-line as described above. News of a return to our normal venue will be published here in due course.

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