Alpaca Association of Ireland

Alpaca Association of Ireland

The official  Alpaca Association of Ireland was founded in 2003 and helps to grow the industry in Ireland. We aim to bring together owners, breeders, lovers and veterinary specialists thus creating a vibrant national industry. We encourage the development of all aspects of the alpaca such as genetic improvement, fibre production and end products including yarn, garments and household goods.

We increase knowledge through shows, farm open days, training courses and workshops. Plus we maintain a registry of the alpacas in Ireland owned by AAI members. In this way, we intend to create an international Breed Standard and use it to evaluate the quality of animals bred and bought by members for identifying and promoting high quality breeding stock.

ICSA

ICSA

The Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers’ Association emerged as a farming lobby group, specifically for cattle and sheep farmers following the 1992 MacSharry Reform of the CAP. 

The farmers who began the development of ICSA identified a number of flaws and inequities introduced in the 1992 reform. These issues formed the basis of the ICSA policy objectives during the Agenda 2000 negotiations, through to the Fischler reforms of 2003 and continue to underpin our policies as CAP post 2013 negotiations progress. We represent the interests of drystock and sheep farmers throughout every county in Ireland, with the national office located in Portlaoise.
