Aims of the IFI Sponsorship Programme

The IFI Sponsorship Programme aims to increase awareness of Inland Fisheries Ireland, its work, recreational angling in Ireland and the inland fisheries resource. Inland Fisheries Ireland may support events on the basis of:

  • Location and nature of the Event.

  • Potential of the Event to introduce new users to angling in an active capacity, i.e. not just as spectators.

  • Education / Increased awareness / Empowerment of stakeholders in the areas of recreational angling / environmental / commercial fisheries / habitat issues / increasing tourism offering.

  • Development of non-established Events and support of established events.

  • Increased participation in National and International Events for Juvenile / Female / anglers of disability.

  • Distribution of sponsorship across all angling disciplines and all River Basin Districts in equal proportions where possible.

  • Promotion of equal opportunities events.

  • Promotion of Events that can draw large numbers/repeat visits of angling participants to rural areas.

Children and vulnerable adults

Event organisers should follow the Children First National Guidance 2017 on working with children. You will find this at the link below. As per the Children First Act 2015 and the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012, all event organisers and those assisting in the event must be Garda Vetted. https://www.tusla.ie/uploads/content/Children_First_National_Guidance_2017.pdf

Forms of support available

Financial support subject to maximum limits is set out above according to available budget. 
Staff, equipment loan and location supports are subject to availability.

  • The provision of hospitality, where the hospitality is the central or core aspect to the support sought from Inland Fisheries Ireland.

The Privacy Notice outlines the categories of personal data collected and processed by Inland Fisheries Ireland for the purposes of evaluating and processing your application.

Submission deadline

All applicants for financial support must complete and submit the online sponsorship application before February 14th, 2020. Applications will not be assessed until AFTER the submission closing dates. Applications for non-financial support can be submitted at any time.

Late or incomplete application forms will not be assessed. It is the responsibility of the person/organisation seeking support to ensure the application is received in time to meet the deadline. There is no automatic entitlement to support from Inland Fisheries Ireland. Our decision is final.

Freedom of information

Inland Fisheries Ireland is subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 and the European Communities (Access to Information on the Environment) Regulations 2007 to 2014 and therefore has to consider any request made to it under both of these statutory laws.

Health and safety

The event organisers must adhere to all the relevant Health and Safety Legislation and carry out all necessary risk assessments, checks and procedures to safeguard the Event participants and spectators. For all Inland Fisheries Ireland sponsored Events on inland waterways where participation or administration/stewarding activities require participants to go afloat on board a boat, float tube, kayak or other type of vessel, a lifejacket must be worn by all individuals involved in these activities. For sea angling Events, life Jackets must be worn by all participants, stewards and organisers where required by law. Organisers are asked to postpone those Events where weather conditions forecast, particularly wind (Beaufort 6/Strong Breeze and above), are not conducive to safe angling or where Met Eireann issue weather warnings; otherwise they may forego any awards granted.

Change of dates

In awarding sponsorship support, Inland Fisheries Ireland may require event organisers to change the event dates, where congestion occurs or to provide for better clustering of complimentary activities i.e. dates of events changed to maximise spread of angling activity/opportunity.

Sponsorship criteria

Angling Event applications will be assessed according to the following criteria and assigned a score with support proportionally awarded to the highest scoring Events. Only Events which meet the essential criteria will be considered.

Where possible, support will be assigned to assist with the development of new Events which provide additional opportunities to attract more users to recreational angling.

Leave No Trace initiatives

The Leave No Trace programme is designed to help outdoor enthusiasts to value the natural environment, to understand the impact of their activities and to enable them to make decisions to minimise that impact while still enjoying their activities with freedom.
The seven principles of Leave No Trace are:

  • Plan ahead and prepare.

  • Be considerate of others.

  • Respect farm animals and wildlife.

  • Travel and camp on durable ground.

  • Leave what you find.

  • Dispose of waste properly.

  • Minimise the effects of fire.

Events should be organised with due consideration to Leave No Trace where applicable. For more information on Leave No Trace see http://www.leavenotraceireland.org/

 

  • Inland Fisheries Ireland will evaluate all submissions in line with the sponsorship evaluation criteria while taking note of any developments arising out of discussions taking place between the Minister of State and the angling federations.

  • After the closing date and advise applicants of each outcome in writing.

  • If sponsorship is approved, the applicant will be sent a letter of offer containing the conditions of sponsorship which must be signed and returned.

  • If sponsorship is not approved, the applicant will be advised.

Insurance

Inland Fisheries Ireland strives to manage risk associated with events taking place on fisheries in its care. To ensure that event organisers have appropriately assessed the risk associated with their event on Inland Fisheries Ireland fisheries, Inland Fisheries Ireland has divided events into two categories each with different insurance verification standards:

Category 1 (LOW Risk) Events

This category includes events:

  • Where any water based activity is appropriately equipped using qualified personnel at the appropriate supervisor-to-participant ratios (as deemed by the sports organising authority).

  • From accredited or suitable applicants, i.e., a constituted club or organisation with a history of running similar activities or event organisers / supervisors who are accredited in the activity proposed and have ongoing insurance.

Category 1 events may be required to submit the name of their insurance company, the policy number and date of expiry.

Category 2 (HIGH Risk) Events

This category focuses on events which include water activity which;

  • Is predominately motor-powered.

  • Has a multiple number of waterside or waterway activities within the event.

  • Is organised by an ad-hoc committee.

Category 2 events must have their insurance company complete an Insurance Verification Form and return it for verification by an independent insurance assessor. 

Powered events are considered to be those where the engine used in the craft exceeds 10hp.

The insurance verification process must be completed a minimum of three weeks before the event takes place.

The conditions of support may include some or all of the following:

  • That Inland Fisheries Ireland must be acknowledged in all promotional material; other schemes involving Inland Fisheries Ireland support will also be acknowledged where applicable (Dublin Angling Initiative; Angling for Youth Development Ireland; Midland Fisheries Fund; Salmon Conservation Fund etc.).
