Just a note to give you details of upcoming GAIA events over the summer months in Ireland:
- June 16th Trim County Meath Country Fair: GAIA will have a stand to showcase fly casting and fly tying skills. Part of the idea with this event is is to give GAIA members in Ireland an opportunity to meet up and have casting related fun (I'll bring the hula hoops and tape measure). It would also be great to discuss ways to build on our activities and presence in Ireland. Pat O'Toole is organising this event and can be contacted on 0862520984. Hope to see you there.
- July 20th full day double handed casting event in Abbeyfeale, Co Kerry. Fisheries minister invited to attend with all river Feale clubs.
- August 23rd/24th GAIA assessments and workshops in Kilsheelan, Co Tipperary.
We have plans to improve our presence on the web by adding Irish fishing/ casting content. If you would like to contribute articles, fishing reports, images etc. please let me know. If you need any more information on any of the above, please don't hesitate to give me a call.

GAIA in Ireland ran two very successful days at Kilsheelan where there were 6 assessments and 3 CPPD workshops. We were ably assisted by the ACI and IFI who ran workshops on First Aid, Child Protection and Coaching Persons with Disabilities. A big thank you must go to the professional instructors who happily gave up their time to run these courses. It is very important for all members within GAIA to keep these qualifications up to date thus keeping GAIA instructors at the forefront of their profession. With this professionalism and the fact that we strive to keep our standards in fly casting as high as they can possibly be can only be a benefit to the organisation and to the clients we instruct.

Another successful fund-raising event held by GAIA in association with the Angling Council for Ireland. Proceeds were for the Munster Blackwater Salmon and Trout Angling Club and approximately seventy anglers, wives and youngsters in total attended. The event was hosted by Philip Maher alongside the Suir who provided steak rolls and refreshments at lunch time for all the participants – no mean feat.
