About Us

The aim of the NQIA elected committee and association members is to foster community spirit and friendship through active involvement in the promotion of Irish culture and tradition in the Townville area with regular social events that include music, song and dance.

The NQIA committee is elected annually at an AGM around October of every year and holds regular meetings. All events are open to members and non members.

We look forward to jamming with you.

The big event of the year is St Patricks day in March where Association members and friends are involved in a local Irish traditional music band which actively participates in the festivities.

Members also participate in the Palm Creek Folk Festival held at Palm creek usually held during the Queens birthday long weekend in June.
Cost of membership is $15 for individuals and $25 for families.
When you join you will receive an association key ring, which, when presented at the Great Northern Hotel will enable discount on drinks.
