We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl - year after year.

Is there anything like that organized in Ireland?

Nothing in the immediate future, I'm afraid - but who knows what next year might bring?

The Club did run a series of biennial Fish Shows, but enthusiasm to continue seems to have faded - likewise with the Club Charity Auctions.

It would be nice to see events like these reinstated.

There was talk of another Forum members' get-together, but this, too seems to have disappeared without trace, I'm afraid to say.

Would like to go to this looks great. Also the aagb run a 2 day event in April. Another one on the wish list. It would be great if the shows or auctions came back in Ireland

Shame, it would be nice to have some. I guess crisis took another toll...

Although not strictly Fish-oriented the HSI event on Saturday week will be most interesting - and I think some of the ITFS members will be present.

Does anyone know if it's straightforward to come back from UK from a show like this, with live fish ?

Jim, on the ferry I have brought fish back with no bother every time I had been over in the past.

But the anti-terrorist measures now in place would, I think, make it all-but impossible to get any over by plane.

hi ,a few years ago we had many trips to the uk and northern Ireland by car bringing koi back to Ireland ,basicly because there were very few good quality koi in Ireland and the uk had an endless supply of them . About 4 years ago when at a dealer in northern Ireland he advised us that if we were stopped to say the fish were our own that we had taken to a show in the north . He said that southern Ireland had been declared cefas free ( think this is some diease that coldwater fish get ) and that both northern Ireland and uk wernt , therefore you were no longer allowed to import fish from these countries . the same as not being allowed to bring a dog from a country that has rabbies into one that is free from it. Not sure of the current situation ,the fisheries board would always advise you .
