Royal Irish Automobile Club, Dublin 2
The Irish Automobile Club - as it was then known - was formed at a
meeting on the night of January 22nd 1901, and is one of the oldest
motor clubs in the world. Set up to further and promote the interests of
automobilism in Ireland, its first general meeting took place in the
Metropole Hotel in Sackville Street (now O'Connell Street), Dublin on
March 12th 1901.
The RIAC's current clubhouse in Dawson Street also saw the formation of the Irish Aero Club in 1909.
The club was awarded the ‘Royal' prefix to its title in recognition of the humanitarian work carried out by its members during the Great War when many Irish men, returning injured from the front, were transported to convalescent homes on members' vehicles that were converted into ambulances for this pupose.
