Countryside Alliance Ireland

The Work and campaigns of Countryside Alliance Ireland

Our vision is of a vital, working and thriving countryside for the benefit of the whole nation. We promise to be the undisputed champion of the countryside and our rural communities.

We keep our promise by:

  • Campaigning for and maintaining the values of the countryside
  • Defending the economy, the social infrastructure and traditions of the countryside
  • Promoting the rights of people to take part in country pursuits
  • Standing up for the interests of our members, and giving them authority and visibility
  • Challenging unjust legislation
  • Providing education about wider rural interests
  • Being  politically active, locally and nationally?

Countryside Alliance Ireland has been active since the early 1960s, providing Irish sportsmen and women with high levels of information and advice and representation. Over the years as the political environment has changed we have evolved into a highly effective campaigning organisation.


Whilst almost all Countryside Alliance Ireland (CAI) members will join the organisation because of a love of the countryside and an appreciation for the work that the CAI does to defend and promote country sports and rural life, some may also sign up to take advantage of the range of benefits that are offered as part of the membership.

One such benefit is the automatic inclusion to CAI’s insurance programme organised by R K Harrison Insurance Services (RKHIS). The package provides Personal Accident cover and Employers’, Public and Products Liability cover for eligible members to participate in a wide range of specific country pursuits (otherwise referred to as Recognised Activities) including a variety of riding and shooting event
