The official  Alpaca Association of Ireland was founded in 2003 and helps to grow the alpaca industry in Ireland.  Additionally, we aim  to bring together alpaca owners, breeders, lovers and veterinary specialists thus creating a vibrant national alpaca industry in Ireland.

Firstly, we encourage the development of all aspects of the alpaca such as genetic improvement, fibre production and end products including yarn, garments and household goods.

Secondly, we increase knowledge about alpacas through shows, farm open days, training courses and workshops. alpaca

Thirdly, the Alpaca Association of Ireland maintains a list of the alpacas in Ireland owned by AAI members.  In this way, we intend to create an international Breed Standard and use it to evaluate the quality of alpacas bred and bought by members for identifying and promoting high quality breeding stock. alpaca

Finally, Members of the Alpaca Association of Ireland encourage farm visits for families, individuals and, of course, schools. Please ask for your nearest member’s open days, or contact a committee member to suggest options.
