About Irish Rural Link

Irish Rural Link (IRL) is a national network of organisations and individuals campaigning for sustainable rural development in Ireland and Europe. It is, a non-profit organisation and directly represents over 600 community groups with a combined membership of 25,000. A member of the Community and Voluntary Pillar of Social Partnership, the network provides a structure through which rural groups and individuals, representing disadvantaged rural communities, can voice their common needs and priorities, share their experiences and present their case to policy-makers at local, national and European Level.

Irish Rural Link’s vision is of vibrant, inclusive and sustainable rural communities that contribute to an equitable and just society.

 

The mission of IRL is to influence and inform on local, national and European development policies and programmes in favour of rural communities, especially those marginalised as a result of poverty,  exclusion and isolation, and support rural communities to implement appropriate strategic programmes that improve their circumstances.
