During the Covid-19 crisis, these groups are currently paused. We hope to restart them soon.


The Shamrock Group is a culturally sensitive support service for Irish people living with memory loss. The group meets every Wednesday 12pm - 2:30pm at Christ the King. We also campaign to ensure the Irish Community living with memory loss are receiving the necessary support. Please contact us if you are interested in making a referral to the group. 

The Claddagh Group is a weekly members group that meets for coffee and chatting every Tuesday from 12pm-2pm at Flannelly's Club, 59-61 Holyhead Road, Coventry. We arrange raffles, tombolas, cake sales, and guest speakers for the group along with regular activities, events, day trips and annual holiday to Ireland. 

The Carer's Group offers respite and support to both carers and their families on the second Thursday of each month from 11am-1pm at the CIS office. The group also organizes a variety of outings and social events. No charge
