Current Situation

Because of the ongoing Coronavirus situation Club meetings are cancelled until further notice. Rotary is more than our meetings and during this time, we are looking to see if we can be of any help to the community particularly the elderly and instead of meetings we will be keeping in contact with our members by continuing our weekly emails particularly sharing stories and photographs. We urge everyone to look after yourselves and take whatever steps are necessary to protect your family.

Happy 115th Birthday Rotary

Rotary celebrates 115 years today. Much has changed in the world since 1905. Then, the global population was roughly 1.7 billion. Today, it is 7.7 billion. There were 5 telephones per 100 people in the United States 115 years ago. In 2020, it is estimated that 96 percent of the U.S. population has a cellphone — and both China and India have more than a billion cellphones in use. In the 115 years since Rotary was founded, seemingly everything has changed except Rotary values. Rotary began and remains committed to fellowship, integrity, diversity, service, and leadership following the Service motto…

Welcome to the website of The Rotary Club of Belfast.


T1920 tspPlease explore it and get a flavour of how volunteer Rotarians use their skills and vocations throughout our various projects to Make a Difference to people less fortunate than ourselves at home and abroad and the fun and fellowship we enjoy being members of the family of Rotary. 


The Rotary Club of Belfast is a vibrant club, welcoming and friendly
and we welcome visitors from the World of Rotary at any time.





It is a great honour for me to be taking on the role of President for the Rotary year 2019/20.

Being a Club based in Belfast city centre enables us to connect with the local Community, through service with YouthAction, Mitchell House and the Tree of Remembrance. Worldwide we support the fight to ‘End Polio Now’ and help some of the world’s poorest people work their own way out of poverty with dignity by investment in small business via the Lendwithcare scheme in many countries including Ecuador, Malawi and Cambodia.

We appreciate the tremendous amount of service already given by members but are looking forward to encouraging new members to join. Any prospective member is most welcome at any of our Monday meetings.

This year’s Rotary theme is Rotary connects the World
and we hope that you will help us to build those connections.

Karen Blair, President 2019/20
