Post 27 Port Laois (Co. Laois), held is inaugural meeting on 27th October 2004. The support from members of the National Executive who were in attendance was appreciated. The Post committee immediately set to work and three months later over thirty members attend our first AGM on 26 January 2005.    National, United Nations Post flags were acquired shortly thereafter and most of our members were in uniform. Presently Post 27 is based in the Old Mill, Portlaoise, Co. Laois.

In 2006 a mass for deceased members and flag blessing ceremony took place.

Since our inauguration we have taken part annually in the Saint Patrick's Day Parade in surrounding towns and Remembrance Sunday Ceremonies in Portlaoise and National commemorations ceremonies.

A memorial to honour all those who gave their lives in the service of world Peace with UN was erected locally by Post 27 this year in Keeping with IUNVA's primary role, members of the Post were instrumental in re-housing one of our members who had lost his home in an accidental fire. Post 27 were delighted to host the Annual General Convention in 2007 in Portlaoise, which by all accounts was very successful.
