The Queensland Irish Association was established on 23 March 1898 at a meeting of over 150 members of Brisbane’s Irish community. The gathering was dominated by influential professional and business men, an indication that, by the 1890s, Brisbane’s middle and upper classes contained a substantial Irish component that was predominantly Catholic.
