Who’re we?

The Mid-West Humanists are a group of Humanists, Atheists, Skeptics and Freethinkers living in Limerick, Clare and Tipperary.

Currently we hold meetings once a month. If you’re a Humanist, Atheist, Agnostic, or Skeptic living in the Mid-West (or willing to travel) and are interested in meeting like minded people please come along to our next meeting or email us.


As many people attend because they have found some aspects of society biassed towards religion, and thus uncomfortable or unfair for people who lean away from religion, the Mid-West Humanists have come to favour a secular society and a secular state. Some of us have campaigned in public for such changes.

Our Aims for Society

We favour a secular society and a secular state.

A secular society means where the State institutions, and other organisations, and society, treat all people equally, and take no account of whether a person has a religion or not.

The Mid-West Humanists favour a democratic, open society. What we hope to change, we seek to change by open and democratic means.

You can learn more about the changes that we seek on the Media page.
There you can reach our leaflets, and our recorded media, advocating these changes. We explain the reasons for what we seek. We show how the secular society will work well for all people (with any religion or with no religion), and how it will not make society more difficult for any person.

  1. Very enjoyable metting last night. Its great to get an opportunity to say out loud and to discuss & share Humanist issues you have perhaps only semi-formed in your mind. Lots of very interesting topics discussed and I learn’t a lot. Look forward to next month.

  2. thank you so much for letting this exist. I go to a catholic school but personally i think everyone should just treat each other with compassion and understanding. peace and love are the most important rules to live by. Religion isn’t necessary to live peacefully and morally, in fact it usually corrupts those ideals of peace and love.

  3. Looking forward to attending my first meeting tonight in Limerick.

  4. Keep me posted. Thanks

  9. I also thought you meant the midwest of the US, that’s where i live. I’m still really happy I found your site, my mother’s family is of Irish heritage and I was so excited to see that you’re representing the Irish atheist community! Thank you for your wonderful blog!

  10. Hi,

    Would love to know when the next meeting is on… living in Dublin but originally from Limerick.

  11. Oh you gotta be fist fuckin’ me. I thought this was a midwest (United States) humanists club. Do people in Ireland truly refer to it as the midwest!? I’ve been to Ireland before, and I must say, it might be the most beautiful country I’ve ever been. Certainly more breathtaking than the midwest of the United States.

  12. Hi

    Look forward to attending the next meeting if possible, best wishes to all humanists, athiests and rationalisits in S W Ireland
