New Membership

The Club subscription year starts on 1st November and ends on 31st October following year. You can join IMC at any stage of the year, however we don’t pro-rate the membership fee depending on the joining month. All new members joining after 1st September can benefit from membership for up to 14 months in their first year of membership.

We use the WordPress website to administer your personal and membership details together with your preferences and take subscriptions via PayPal, online bank transfer, cash or cheque.  We currently recommend online bank transfer. Please consider the alternatives and get in touch with Membership Officer if any questions.

To join the Club, please complete the following steps:

JOIN the IMC by completing the online form click here.

Please complete these details fully & accurately as the Membership Officer will need this information to create a Mountaineering Ireland (MI) profile on your behalf & pay your MI subscription.
You have two options for payment

    1. Pay via bank transfer (prefered) by selecting the appropriate subscription below and user the coupon code IMCPAYBYBANK at checkout.
    2. Pay via paypal at checkout using the paypal link at the end of the registration form

The Membership Officer will only approve & process your IMC membership once both steps are fully completed, usually within 3-7 working days.

Your membership is valid from the date when the payment is received and processed (usually within 3-7 working days) till the end of current membership year. Example: a membership paid today will expire on 31st October 2022 and cease on 31st December 2022.

Once your IMC membership has been approved you will receive an email from the IMC website containing your username and link to set your password.  This will give you full access to the Members-Only pages of the website including the Forum.

The IMC/MI membership cards are processed in batches (on a weekly or bi-weekly basis) and once the card is issued, the Membership Officer will contact you accordingly.

Should you have any questions about joining the IMC, contact Gerard O’Sullivan on
