The **Irish Mathematical Society** (Irish: * Cumann Matamaitice na hÉireann*) or IMS is the main professional organization for mathematicians in Ireland. The society aims to further Mathematics and Mathematical research in Ireland. Its membership is international, but it mainly represents mathematicians in Universities and other third level institutes in Ireland. It publishes a Bulletin

*The Bulletin of the Irish Mathematical Society*twice per year and runs an annual conference in September, both devoted to mathematical topics from current research to educational issues.

The Society was founded on April 14, 1976 at a meeting in Trinity College, Dublin when a constitution drafted by D McQuillan, John T. Lewis and Trevor West was accepted.^{[1]}^{[2]} It is a member organization in the European Mathematical Society. The logo was designed by Irish mathematician Desmond MacHale.^{[3]}
