I thought réunir was conjugated as an ´ir’ Verb.

if it is conjugated as an ´ir’ verb The shouldn’t the third person plural in the present be réunirent and not réunissent? If it’s nor conjugated as ´ir’ then The explanation for it being irregular is not available. Does that make sens or have I missed something?

This relates to:

Hi Mary,

3rd person plural of réunir in passé simple is réunirent. Réunissent is present tense. I suspect you knew that already but without knowing the sentence in question I can't comment further.

By the way, here is a handy conjugation table:
