Scouting Ireland is the National Scout Association for Ireland and a member of the World Organisation of the Scout Movement.

Scouting Ireland was formed on 1st January 2004 from the two original Scout Associations in Ireland, Scouting Ireland S.A.I. and Scouting Ireland (CSI) – See the History of Scouting in Ireland. Both Associations voted to join together to form a new single Association in 2003, following a decision to set this process in motion in 1998.

Scouting Ireland has over 40,000 members across Ireland, including Northern Ireland where it works in partnership with the Scout Association Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom Scout Association.

The Association is supported by a team of Professional Staff who look after its day to day running.

Scouting Ireland is headed up by a committee of elected volunteers, called the: National Management Committee.
