About Us

The I.V.C.O. is a non-political, non-profit organisation dedicated to recording and preserving the history and artifacts of the Irish Volunteers in the years 1913-1922.

The events which took place in this decade – the fight for Irish independence, the founding of the Irish state, partition of the island of Ireland and bloody civil war – still reverberate today.

It is hoped that our efforts can foster a better understanding of this turbulent period in Irish history, and  a greater spirit of reconciliation in the future of Ireland.

In addition to collecting historical records and artifacts, the IVCO holds exhibitions, lectures and displays throughout Ireland.
