our Work

Very few of us sail through life without experiencing difficulty at some point. Since 1997, the Claddagh Association has been a family away from home, supporting Irish people in Western Australia through the ups and downs of life.
  • We provide help and support to members of the Irish community in WA who find themselves in difficult circumstances.
  • We support senior members of the Irish community and those who may be lonely and isolated.
  • We promote the well-being and development of the Irish community
  • We seek opportunities to engage and work with other Irish community organisations
  • We celebrate and preserve Irish heritage.
If you are part of the Irish community in WA and would like to know more, please get in touch.


My son, Lorcan, was born when I was 24 weeks pregnant. He was with us for seven months and then passed away, and we spent that time in hospital. Towards the end when he passed away my friend rang Claddagh. I can’t remember any of that time. They did everything. Oh my God, they were amazing. They organised the whole funeral. They were so respectful. They got my brother over here from Sydney, paid for the funeral and helped us with rent.

I came into contact with Claddagh when my brother died in a motorbike accident. Eoin [from the Claddagh committee] stepped in to talk to the authorities when no one would give us any information. Claddagh did all the logistics, but they were also so supportive. I didn’t realise Eoin had an actual day job apart from Claddagh because he said, “You can call me any time, day or night,” and that was just to talk, because I was in bits.
