ACI funding update

The Angling Council of Ireland (ACI) is the registered National Governing Body with the Irish Sports Council and recognised as the umbrella body representing several different branches of angling in Ireland, including Sea Angling, via the IFSA. The ACI has received a 50% increase in funding for 2019 and significant funding under the dormant account fund which will be used for specific programmes during 2019. We are hopeful that this will prove fruitful for the IFSA in 2019.
