An Taisce The National Trust of Ireland

An Taisce - 'The Store House, or Treasury' is The National Trust For Ireland. Established in 1948, it is the most influential environmental body in Ireland.

All our policies reflect our core belief that a high quality environment is central to Ireland achieving a successful and sustainable economy, as well as a high quality of life. This is based on the view that prevention is better than cure, partnership and dialogue are better than conflict and monologue, and strategic planning surpasses reactive expediency.

Each year during May all over the country Bealtaine events run in arts centres, theatres, libraries, galleries, community centres, local halls, care settings, cultural spaces and even in the open air.

Belfast Exposed is a photographic resource, archive and gallery. Based in Belfast city centre's historic Cathedral Quarter it remains Northern Ireland's only dedicated photography gallery.

A policy of project origination and publication, the exhibition, screenings and talks programme and provision of photographic facilities and training all fuel this process.
