The Irish Anti-Apartheid Movement was founded in 1964 to support the people of South Africa opposed to the apartheid regime. It called for a boycott of South African goods and campaigned for the release of political prisoners.

It was founded by Kader Asmal, a law lecturer in Trinity College, Dublin, who returned to South Africa in 1990 and was a member of the post-apartheid South African parliament and cabinet.

After the transition from apartheid, the Ireland South Africa Association was established as a successor group.

    I believe the Irish anti apartheid body, is the successor to the organisation founded by Kader Amal. How often does the new body hold its meetings? Is it registered as a charitable body? Is membership still open
