As far as I can tell, the closest chapter is the Model A Ford Club of Great Britain. I couldn't find a Model A Club in Ireland. Sorry.

I lived in Ireland for four years and eight days, traveled from one end to the other and at no time did I ever see any Model A Ford or any other car from that time period. They are into steam engines though.....and pubs.

Pretty sure there is a Model T Club in Ireland, though.

This is the closest thing I could find that combines "Irish+Model A"

Went to Ireland a few years ago and could not find a club or car. However, there is a stainless steel replica Model T in little town SW of Cork where Henry's father was from.

Thanks to everyone for the replies. I had already found the items on Ford's family in Ireland, the factory in Cork, and the Model "T" club, but nothing about any Model "A" Club. I do know of at least one "A" in Ireland though. Check out this ad for one for sale in Dublin:

I drove by that place quite a bit going to Dublin from Wicklow where I lived.....a piece of advice, want to laugh, get the price!!!!! I was there during the height of the so called "Celtic Tiger" and I'm sure the price will give anyone proof that it's still exist.
