Membership of IGG happens through your local Unit. Each Unit is registered with the National Organisation and Leaders go through an in-depth training process to run our Units. You can enter the area where you live on the Unit Locator map to see if there is an Irish Girl Guide Unit near to you. If there is, please contact National Office to be put in touch with your local Unit Leaders. Alternatively, you can choose your town/county and the Locator will determine which Regional Development Officer (RDO) is the appropriate person to contact – the RDO will be happy to help you join a Unit. If there isn’t a Unit near you and you would like to set one up, we would be delighted to support you.
