SUSTAINED progress toward the international enactment of calendar reform was reported at the Seventh Annual Meeting 15 January 1954 of The World Calendar Association, International, held in the International Building, New York City. Published highlights (JCR Vol. 24, April 1954) for IRELAND:

The proposed Irish Association for Calendar Reform is still in process of organization, but it is already active. For the time being, it calls itself a "study group," and it is receiving considerable correspondence not only from various parts of Ireland but also from countries as distant as Australia and Egypt. The temporary secretary, Professor John J. O'Meara, writes: "Interest has increased, due partly to a series of articles published in one of the most influential newspapers. These articles were the subject of editorial comment in another paper, and there followed a general correspondence in the public press. As a result, the Dublin Rotary Club invited the secretary of the British association for calendar reform to address on of their meetings. His speech aroused a lively discussion and thee were full press reports. It was decided then that a steering committee should be formed to organize an Irish association and to insure that such an organization should be truly representative of all professions and callings, including the Church, the Law, Education, Business, Civil Service and other circles."
