The Irish Association of Professional Historians is a new organisation due to launch on 15 April 2014. The organisation and its website, will be launched by the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Jimmy Deenihan, TD at the Royal Irish Academy at 6pm on 15 April 2014.

Membership of the IAPH is open to historians trained or working in Ireland as well as international historians and scholars with an expertise or interest in historical studies.

Prospective members will be able to join on the night or via the website after the launch.
