About us

Rotary is a world-wide organisation with over 1,200,000 members.  It was formed in 1905 by a Chicargo lawyer Paul Harris.  The Rotary Motto is "Service above self" and its symbol is a wheel - said to illustrate Civilisation and Movement.

The Rotary Club of Portadown is part of Rotary Ireland (known as District 1160).  The Club was formed in June 1936 and was the 5th Rotary Club to be set up in District 1160. 

We are a bunch of like-minded people who come together to promote the ethics of Rotary through local and international events. 

So, What is Rotary? - this is the question answered by our Rotary President, Ian Risely from Austrailia.  Click on the link above to watch the video.
