Corona Virus

During the on going pandemic we will accept a passport style picture ie head and shoulders printed on paper or card it must also be the size of a passport photo which is 35 x 45mm.

Veteren and concession membership can only be purchased from the secretary.

As a requirement of membership all anglers must be in possession of a valid Environment Agency rod licence when fishing GAA waters, as a result of this it has been decided by the GAA committee that before a person can purchase a GAA book they will now have to produce their EA rod licence.

This also has the effect of determining whether the angler is entitled to purchase a book for which a discounted concession is available.

From the begining of the 2020/21 season we will be changing to a laminated membership card so weather applying for membership by post or from our agents you will need to have a passport size photo with you no photo no membership there will be no exceptions.

  1. Juniors 5 - 7, application for membership to secretary. (No rod licence needed.)
