The Irish Labour History Society (ILHS) was established in 1973 with the Constitutional obligation to 'promote the knowledge of Irish labour history and of Irish people in labour history abroad and labour history in general'.
The Society aims to preserve the records and reminiscences, written and oral, of the Irish working class and its organisations. The Society frequently organizes conferences and events and also issues publications on Irish labour, including its annual journal Saothar.
Society membership is composed of individuals, labour-related organisations, academic institutions, libraries and archival bodies.
