Monaco-Ireland Arts Society is based in Monaco, dedicated to promoting Irish culture by presenting the literary, dramatic and musical works of Ireland in the Principality of Monaco and its immediate environs.

It was founded by Virgina Connell, Nick O'Conor, the late Paul Connell and Professor George Sandulescu, in October 1994 thanks to the generosity and support of Dr Michael W Smurfit, the Irish Consul in the Principality. 

Our very first President, at the time of the creation of the Society, was the late Martin O'Regan.  

Over a period of ten years prior to this date, dramatised play-readings and poetry recitals were given at sundry local venues.

Rehearsals are held in the Green Room premises, graciously put at our disposal by the Drama Group of Monaco, which are situated in the Stade Louis II.

In Shakespearean theatre, actors would prepare for their performances in a room filled with plants and shrubs. It was believed that the moisture in the topiary was beneficial to the actors' voices. Thus the Green Room may refer to the green plants in this stage preparation area.
