was founded in 1899 in the USA and now operates in 200 countries worldwide, and has placed over 2 billion Scriptures since then.
We have been in Ireland since 1963 where over 1/4 million Bibles have been distributed in that time. Gideons often reach people who may never have a copy of God’s Word for themselves.

The Gideons International (Ireland) are an interdenominational association of Christian business and professional men and our wives.
We are dedicated to sharing the Gospel through conversation and through the distribution of God’s Word in some of the busy traffic lanes of life such as hotels, schools, prisons, military, hospitals and other medical installations on a voluntary basis and free of charge. Our Gideon Bible app is now available online for you to use on your device.
We believe God speaks to us through the Bible, and has an important message for all mankind, a message we need to read and make up our own minds about.
We believe the Bible holds the answers to life, and to living the life God intends for us. Therefore, people need access to God’s Word to read it and discover what God is saying.
Having God’s Word can lead people to faith in Christ, and Christians can grow by studying the Bible and even use it to share their faith with others. We want to see God's word spread throughout Ireland and in all the nations.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (ESV)
