About The Irish Road Haulage Association
The Irish Road Haulage Association was founded in 1973 with the purpose of representing and promoting the interests of the licensed transport industry in Ireland and abroad.
The Association is run by a Council and Management Committee, equivalent to a board of directors, and chaired by the President. It is structured to ensure the views and needs of members in every part of the country are considered on an equal one member one vote basis. There are ten regional branches, each branch meeting regularly to discuss matters of local and national interest.
The IRHA is a non-profit organisation and is funded via both members subscriptions and a variety of sponsorship arrangements.
