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.

Our Objectives


Animal Care Society

The Animal Care Society (Cork), a registered charity, was formed in October 2000. The aim of the Animal Care Society is stated in its name, to try and provide care to all animals in Cork City and County that require it. We are almost entirely made up of volunteers who give their time and effort to help animals.

Through our network of dedicated dog, cat and wildlife fosterers we have rehomed over 6000 animals since our foundation. We also operate a help line service dealing with animal welfare matters.

Aonad Resource Centre

Aonad Resource Centre opened its doors in February 2003. It has since become progressively busier as the rural community of North East Galway explore the supports and services that we can provide.
