ordinary people, amazing things.
Lions Clubs International is an non-political service organisation established originally in 1917 in Chicago, Illinois, by Melvin Jones and now consists of 48,000 clubs and 1.45 million members operating in almost every country of the world.
Howth/Sutton Lions Club are part of almost 100 clubs with 2,000 members on the island of Ireland organised under Ireland District 133 (established 2017) of Lions Clubs International.
Lions Clubs on the island of Ireland are administered by a District Governor team comprising the District Governor, first and second Vice District Governors and the immediate Past District Governor. They head a Cabinet, comprising administrative officers, project officers and the chairs of Zones representing clubs throughout the country. All posts are voluntary and Lions Clubs in Ireland do not have professional staff.
Our geographical area of responsibility ranges east-west from the Howth Peninsula to Raheny. The area includes all districts from Howth to Coolock, Bonnybrook and Darndale, and parts of Raheny, i.e. Dublin postal districts 5,13 and part of 17.
Membership of a Lions Club is by invitation but all Clubs welcome new members so if you would like to help us in our work, please contact your local Lions Club and they will take it from there.
When it comes to serving our local community there is no better way of doing it than through a Lions Club. If you are interested in helping others, we have a project that will allow you to achieve this.
We help the young and the old. We help the blind and the sighted. While most of our work is focused on our local communities, we have many Third World projects. We have Environmental Projects and much more…….
