PROBUS is the Association of retired and semi-retired professional and business people or indeed anyone with some measure of responsibility in any field of endeavour.

The basic purpose of a Probus Club is to provide a forum for conversation, exchange of news and listening to interesting speakers.

Ballyclare Probus Club is a male club which meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday mornings of every month excluding June to August and December.

The programme of meetings for 2021 is listed below. You are very welcome to come along to these meetings to see what we offer before committing yourself to formally joining if you wish.

All meetings are at 11am in the Dunadry Hotel unless stated otherwise with tea/coffee from 10:30.
