The Irish Society for Archives was founded in December 1970 in response to the lack of a forum for the discussion of archival matters in Ireland. Its first meeting was held in the Physics Theatre, UCD, Earlsfort Terrace and those present elected Professor Robert Dudley Edwards as its first chair. It published the Irish Archives Bulletin which later grew into Irish Archives, which remains Ireland's only dedicated archives journal.

The Irish Society for Archives exists to promote the place of archives in Irish society. It publishes Irish Archives annually, a twice-annual newsletter and organizes lectures on topics of interest and concern to archivists, the users of archives and the wider public.

Members are welcome from all over Ireland and overseas.
