IPA Ireland Junior Members Forum

IPA Ireland is please to announce a new initiative aimed at some of our younger serving IPA members – The IPA Junior Members Forum. This initiative aims to increase the profile of IPA for junior members, many of whom may have just joined An Garda Síochána and IPA and want to get involved in shaping the future of our great Association.   If you would like to take part, get in touch IPA with your local Regional Committee before 30 Sep 2019 as there will be one Junior member per Region selected to attend a Junior Forum meeting before the end of this year. For more information, see attached report IPA Junior Forum 2019 from IPA Ireland President, Conor O’ Higgins.

The Bricks for Gimborn Initiative

Gimborn Castle IPA

On behalf of IPA Section Germany and its President, Horst W. Bichl, we share the following message:


As you all know the IBZ Castle Gimborn is looking forward to its 50th anniversary which will be celebrated at the last weekend of August.

You probably want to congratulate the IBZ and maybe you also think about a gift you could make.

For this purpose, we established the “Bricks for Gimborn” initiative.

You are welcome to join the initiative and contribute to the renovation of the guest rooms.
