501st_ireland_garrison_legion.jpg

The 501st Legion is an all-volunteer, non-profit international Star Wars costuming club whos aims are to raise money for charities, to support community events and promote the franchise through appearances their members make in costumes that represent all eras of the Star Wars Saga.

Formed in August 1997 by Albin Johnson and Tom Crews, the Legion now has over 13,000 active members worldwide, with over 26,000 approved costumes.

The Legion is active on 6 continents, with local units known as "Garrisons" and "Outposts" in over 60 countries. Garrison members work in their areas or countries to create that local identity and to encourage teamwork within those communities.
501st Legion’s member’s research, build, craft and make their own costumes, in their own time and expense to appear at events.

Members are encouraged to strive for the highest level of screen accuracy and realism in order to bring the characters of the Star Wars universe to life.
As such it would be easy to mistake the 501st Legion as a cosplay group but really we are a ‘costuming’ club; where accuracy and dedication to making the most authentic costumes is as important to our members as raising money for the charities we support.

As well as attending larger national and international events, our key objectives is also to give something back to the communities we live in through charity fundraising at the events we attend – large or small.

Learn more about the great charity work and appearances they make around Ireland. Or maybe join the Dark Side and do some good.
