The Irish Skeptics Society (ISS) is a scientific skeptical organisation based in Ireland.[2] It was launched in December 2002[1] and publishes a newsletter called Skeptical Times.[3] The ISS is a member of the European Council of Skeptical Organisations (ECSO).[4]

The organisation regularly sponsors lectures on a variety of topics including self-awareness,[5][6] tolerance,[7] evolution[8] and popularisation of science.[9] In 2004 they sponsored a lecture by James Randi.[10][11] They are a signatory to Sense About Science's Keep Libel Laws out of Science campaign.[12]

Spokespersons from the organisation such as founding member Paul O'Donoghue (a clinical psychologist) are often quoted on paranormal and pseudoscience topics such as homeopathy,[13][14] magnet therapy,[15] Spiral Dynamics[16] and UFOs[17] in the Irish press. Paul O'Donoghue has commented on the amount of coverage alternative medicine gets in the media.[18]

The Irish Skeptics Society hosted the 13th European Skeptics Congress from 7 to 9 September 2007 at the Davenport Hotel in Dublin.[19]
