Ennis Lions Club was formed in 1976 and has been serving the needy and underprivileged of Ennis and its environs for over 40 years, see here.
Lions Clubs are a group of men and women who volunteer their time to try and improve the quality of lives of their local community. With over40 active members, Ennis Lions Club has created a strong vocal and practical platform through which ordinary men and women can serve the needs of the less well-off and those who find themselves on the margins of society.
Ennis Lions Club is part of Lions Clubs International, which was formed in 1917 and is now represented in 185 countries. There are forty four thousand Lions Clubs throughout the world. The work of the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) spans a vast range of services including fitting out hospitals, clinics, libraries and schools and rebuilding communities after natural disasters, floods, tidal waves, earthquakes etc.

Ennis Lions Club has developed strong links with many of the established charitable agencies in Ennis and in the wider County of Clare. We regularly partner with these organisations on selected initiatives to maximise the impact of our charitable works and to ensure that our reach is as expansive as possible.
We are mindful of how we depend on the generosity of the people of Ennis, who have always shown incredible willingness to give, even in times of economic difficulty.

Our Motto “We Serve” is reflected in the many local and international projects undertaken each year by the club.
All monies received go directly to those in need locally, and the members of the club personally fund all costs of the administration of the Club.
