Dear IRBA Members, Friends and Business Associates,

We are now planning our activities for 2014, for which a provisional list of events is provided below. Details to be confirmed. Feedback and suggestions welcome as always.

As you are aware the Ireland Russia Business Association is a voluntary organisation and we work tirelessly to further the aims of the association which is funded through membership subscriptions and sponsorship.

If are not already a member, but like what we do and wish to join to support the association’s future development, you can do so by filling out the membership form online or by submitting an application form (hardcopy attached).


The IRBA is now also seeking strategic partners for 2014 in a number of business sectors. Details of the IRBA partner package sponsorship benefits can be circulated to interested parties. If you would like to find out more about becoming a sponsor of the association and what we can offer your company, a meeting can be arranged to discuss how the IRBA can work together with your company to optimise the return on its investment.

In case you didn’t get a chance to read it, the most recent IRBA newsletter edited by Roman Molochko and sent out in late December 2013 is viewable here.

As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Jen Condon at jc@irba.ie.

Kind regards,

Dr Constantin Gurdgiev
