N.I.P.A. Update Wednesday 27th May 2020.

Latest information from the Northern Ireland Assembly on Wednesday 27th May 2020 is that legislation is now in place to permit pigeon racing within Northern Ireland.

The Northern Ireland Assembly is now in negotiations with the relevant departments in the Republic of Ireland.

At present we can only race within Northern Ireland until confirmation or otherwise is received from the department in the Republic of Ireland. We are hopeful of a decision in the near future.

The Northern Ireland Assembly have also submitted written requests to the Scottish and Welsh legislations to approve liberations of racing pigeons from Northern Ireland at this time.

Please be patient as negotiations take place.

The N.I.P.A. committee if approval is granted plan to have five inland races and review channel racing after the five races.

When any further information is available you will be informed immediately.

Fred Russell  Secretary.
