This chapter introduces various mosques associations for groups such as the Twelver Shiis, Ismailis, Ahmadis, Barelvis and different national and ethnic groups as well as individual initiatives by Muslim activists who challenge the claim of the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland to represent all Muslims in Ireland. This chapter illustrates the organisational and institutional diversity of mosques, communities and groups among Muslims in Ireland, in the capital Dublin and in other major cities, and efforts by organisations affiliated with European networks of the Muslim Brotherhood, such as the ICCI, to dominate the public representation and internal organisation of Muslims in Ireland. The chapter also discusses the trend of the ethno-cultural and sectarian diversification of mosque organisations across Ireland in line with the rapid growth of the number of Muslims in the country.

Keywords:   Twelver Shii, Ismaili, Ahmadiyya, Barelvi, Minhaj-ul-Quran, Cork, Galway, Limerick
