What’s it really like to be a naturist in Ireland?
Irish Naturist Association (INA) was founded in 1963 when a small group of Irish people met while on holiday in naturist surroundings in Europe.
Back in Ireland they met again and decided to set up a naturist organisation – the Irish Naturist Association.
Advertisements were placed in Health and Efficiency, a naturist publication, and the British Naturist newsletter. Members were recruited and meetings at private venues were arranged where they could socialise and enjoy some nude time.
The INA has always been run as a social, non-sexual organisation, with volunteer committees whose job it is to look after the interests of its members and canvas for facilities and a greater acceptance of our lifestyle among the general public.
The association has quietly gone about its business over the years since its founding. However, in the mid 1990s the group decided to write to local authorities in coastal regions asking that areas be set aside for ‘clothing optional’ use on beaches that naturists had already been frequenting.
