Consumers’ Association is Ireland’s independent, self-funded and non-profit organisation, founded in 1966. Its members are ordinary consumers from areas spread right across the country who see the need for and who support such an organisation.
Each year those members are invited to nominate and elect a Council of 20 who will represent the Association. Those Council members appoint a Chairperson and Officers and act as lobbyists and spokespersons in their various areas of expertise.
Consumer Association of Ireland has strenuously represented and fought to protect and strengthen the rights of its members and all Irish consumers. The achievements have been considerable.
According to Consumer Association of Ireland, consumers’ rights are the right to information, fair dealing, protection, education, safety, all culminating in the ability to make informed decisions and choices – are a reality.
