A Leaflet from the Irish Think Tank of the 50’s and 60’s ‘Tuairim’. It has details of what the group did as well as various nationwide contact details.
They were the subject of a book by Dr Tomás Finn, which is reviewed here.
The review notes that

Tuairim (the Irish word for “opinion”) was an intellectual movement that challenged traditional orthodoxy and put forward new ideas and fresh solutions. From the late 1950s, Tuairim’s members, who included the late Garret Fitzgerald, future Supreme Court Judge Donal Barrington, Miriam Hederman O’Brien, Jim Doolan and David Thornley, sought to influence debate and public policy in an attempt to re-invent the country.

Many thanks to the sender.
