Thurles Lions Club was founded in 1964 under the sponsorship of Cashel Lions Club. With a charter membership of 25 members, the Thurles Club has grown to a membership today of over 50 members.
Membership of Thurles Lions Club is a diverse mix from the local community – a club of men and women ranging in age from the 20s to the 80s with a mix of experience, nationalities and backgrounds. Any member can propose a project or cause for consideration within the club. The Club works on a subcommittee basis with a subset of the members responsible for addressing particular projects. The whole membership then gets behind the specific projects as required.
