The Microscopical Society of Ireland (MSI) is a learned society for the promotion of microscopy in Ireland. It was founded in 1975 as the Irish Society For Electron Microscopy and held its first symposium the following year at University College Dublin,[1] an event they have held every year since 1979.[4] It shares the Journal of Microscopy with the Royal Microscopical Society as its official journal.[5] The society is the member organisation of the European Microscopy Society representing the island of Ireland.[6]
