Who We Are
We are a division of the Irish Farmers’ Association (IFA).
The IFA is Ireland’s largest farming organisation. They have worked for Irish farmers for more than 65 years. IFA Countryside is IFA’s country sports membership initiative which was developed almost 20 years ago by IFA to meet the needs of Irish field sport enthusiasts and for those who enjoy countryside pursuits. As part of IFA, we are in a unique position enjoying strong links with farmers and landowners across the country.
Many people are now enjoying a more active lifestyle, participating in various rural pursuits and activities. Our members come from all walks of life: shooting enthusiasts, anglers, walkers, anyone who enjoys the countryside and its many benefits. Our members are also drawn from gun clubs, clay pigeon clubs, fishing clubs, walking clubs etc. Anyone who has a passion for the countryside or enjoys countryside pursuits will know the importance of being insured.
The IFA Countryside Members Insurance Policy is underwritten by FBD; the largest Irish-owned insurance company. Our Membership is designed to give you peace of mind in the countryside with exclusive benefits.
As rural Ireland faces ever-increasing challenges, it’s vital that we all work together to protect the future of our field sports. As a member of IFA Countryside, you can be sure that our campaigns are focused on protecting the rural way of life, ensuring access to rural services and safeguarding the future of field sports for future generations.
We pride ourselves on being a voice for rural Ireland and for people who enjoy countryside pursuits. It is important to IFA Countryside to protect the rural way of life and support your interests.
