Our membership fee of just €10/year enables members to take part in any number of our interest groups, open meetings and other activities throughout the year.

If you want to test the water before taking the plunge, please complete one of our guest forms and bring it with you to any of our events or activities and hand it to the group leader. Our ‘try-before-you-buy’ policy enables anyone who’s thinking about joining to attend up to three group meetings/events, without obligation, before deciding whether to join us.

If you have any questions or want more information, please Contact Us and we’ll be happy to help.

C3A groups are self funding with costs of refreshments, materials or transport shared among group members. Where premises are hired for a specific purpose, members will need to be aware that they are expected to share the cost if they attend the each session.

Some groups meet at a commercial venue where the cost of a drink, purchased by members, covers the use of a public area for discussions.

Groups that meet at members’ homes should contribute towards the cost of any refreshments provided.

Our groups

Our volunteer group leaders offer an extensive program of activities and interest groups and there is bound to be something that sparks your interest. We have also forged links with a number of other activity groups some of which offer membership at a discount to our members.

There is no set range of activities; they continue year on year, or change, to reflect our group leaders’ abilities and our members’ interests, whether they be educational, cultural, physical or recreational. It is learning in the widest sense for its own sake, for personal satisfaction and development – and for making new friends.
