Great Friends, Great Craic! : Irish Australian Support & Resource Bureau

Australia - Victoria

25 is Ireland’s national card game, and we at the Irish Australian Support & Resource Bureau regularly get together to play!  If you’ve been looking for a game steeped in Irish origins, you may just be in luck with the game of 25, a fast paced card game from the rural pubs of Ireland.

The Irish Australian Support & Resource Bureau is a non-profit organisation that was formed in the early 1970s with the aim of supporting the Irish Australian community.  We have been supporting Irish Australians in a multitude of ways since those earlier years. Our organisation helps the community by acting as a backbone of support, friendship and care in Victoria.

The scope of our assistance is flexible to individual needs and issues. If you are experiencing distress, trauma, hardship or simply want to feel part of a community – The Irish Australian Support and Resource Bureau have your back.

In addition to the groups of people that we support, there is a community of amazing people that holds our organisation together strongly. With social gatherings and activities throughout the year, we welcome all ages to get involved for a bit of craic and comradery.


Whether you are on a working holiday visa, have temporary residency or you have been here for many years, our main purpose is to help you.

If you or anyone you know need support, please reach out. Our doors are always open for a chat and we will always try to find solutions to your problems here in Australia.
