Abstract

In this article, we chronicle the history of the Analytics Society of Ireland (An Cumann Eireannach d'Anailísí), which was founded in 1964 as the Operations Research Society of Ireland (ORSI). We discuss the changes the society has undergone, the meetings and activities in which the society has engaged, and the publications the society has produced. We also provide information about some of the key individuals who have been instrumental in the establishment and development of the society.
