Welcome to the Irish Laser Association website.  Anyone may read the information in almost all of the website but only members can post “Buy & Sell” advertisements and enter events.

You can access the Members Area if you are a 2018/2019 ILA Member.  All 2017/2018 memberships expired on 31st March 2018 unless you joined to compete at the Munsters.  Then your membership has been carried forward to 2018/2019.  You will need to renew your membership to access your account to enter events/post on “buy and sell”.

You will be prompted to renew when you input your log in details.  A receipt will be sent to your email account.  You do not need to have a PayPal account to enter – just a credit/debit card.   

You will only have to enter your information once and verify it before entering each event (please ensure you update if you are changing rigs/changed boats etc). You can also post, edit and delete your “Buy and Sell” advertisements. 

Membership for 2018/2019 is for the year ending 31st March, 2019 and costs €15 payable at the end of the registration process via Paypal. This subscription was agreed at the ILA AGM in August 2017 and will remain at €15. Sailors intending to travel outside Ireland should ensure that they take their current Membership card with them.  If you wish to obtain your card please contact the Membership Secretary directly who will be happy to assist you.  In case of difficulty you should seek a membership verification letter from secretary@laser-ireland.com. You must be a current member of the Irish Laser Association to enter Regional/National events.

Any problems please email laserirelandwebmaster@gmail.com.
