WHO WE ARE

The Girls’ Brigade is an International Uniformed Youth Organisation for girls of all ages, denominations, backgrounds and abilities. The Girls’ Brigade Ireland operates in 33 companies around the country, offering a varied programme of activities designed to educate, challenge and inspire young people in a safe, fun and sociable environment.

Every girl has talents to share and skills to develop and we can provide many opportunities for this in an informal setting.

All our leaders have undertaken Child Protection Training and are Garda Vetted.
