Next year Galway City on the west coast of Ireland will be hosting the European Capital of Culture 2020. Throughout this Galway 2020 programme, the themes of language, landscape and migration come to life. Structured around the old Celtic calendar of Imbolc, Bealtaine, Lughnasa and Samhain, Galway 2020 begins in February and runs through until the end of January 2021.

For the past 5 years IPA Galway have built a fabulous IPA event called IPA Aran.  You can find a link below to the IPA Aran Facebook page and a YouTube link to a video showing this years IPA Aran Event.  Also attached in PDF is IPA Irelands most recent magazine – see page 6 onwards to read about this years IPA Aran.

I am currently working closely with the Galway 2020 Capital of Culture committee to collaborate a major IPA event in Galway in conjunction with the Aran Event.  This will be happening in July 2020 and will involve 3 days on the Aran Islands and a number of other events in the amazing Galway city.  A full programme of IPA events will be published soon, but interested IPA members are asked to contact me so that I can keep them directly informed.

Please email MICHAEL WALSH at Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.to register your interest.

See the attached link to the Galway 2020 programme of other events, which are happening during the year.  Of course our IPA region would be only too happy to meet with any members visiting Galway for these events.  IPA Ireland also has a fabulous IPA Accommodation right in the centre of Galway city.

Looking forward to meeting many IPA friends in my home city of Galway and hopefully joining me for IPA Aran where you will get an Irish Céad Míle Fáilte - which means one hundred thousand welcomes.

Hello my friends

Some and Some know it, I am the IPA departmental president of the city of Toulouse in addition to being national travel secretary.

I allow myself to ask you to ask for information.

I work in the municipal police of Toulouse and I am in the neighborhoods of our city. We work jointly with a police station of the national police. This weekend, a friend of us policeman was killed. This drama has hurt us a lot.

The situation was as follows: our colleague was in a queue to buy food at the exit of a disco. Apparently two individuals recognized him as policemen and hit him on the neck with an iron bar. Then once on the ground, the two criminals kicked to the death.

Our colleague and friends would become dad in 4 months. He wished to adhere to our association. As a policeman and friend I allow myself to solicit you to make a gift to his wife.

We would borrow a photographic book with pictures of uniformed policemen all around the world accompanied by a word of courage for his wife.

If you have the opportunity to ask colleagues to make a photo I thank you in advance.

In order to be more precise in my approach, I give you the following details:

1 / the name of the policeman killed is Benjamin
2 / The name of his wife is Sarah

Some of you ask me what exactly I am looking for, in fact I would like a picture of a group of policeman in uniform with a small personalized message for his wife.

I would like to do the book tribute before the end of August.

Thanks to you my friends

Thank you also to my Canadian, Portuguese, Russian friends who have already started the requests.

I tell you that the photos of colleagues will have absently not broadcast on the net.



Your friend

Dear IPA friends,

We are happy and excited to announce that our new website www.ipa-international.org  is now up and running! 

It is of course still early days, and there are a few aspects that need further attention, but we thought the time was right to let you discover the new website yourselves.

In the near future, we will work on getting the National Publications and Interest Group pages functioning and populated, and have many plans, including a picture gallery, as well as extended History and World Congress pages, to name only a few.

Plus there is scope for the Commissions pages to expand significantly.

Our  website benefits tremendously from your contributions, so please keep sending us any of your events you wish advertised internationally – we are happy to upload these for you.

We hope you like the new international website and look forward to your feedback!

Kind regards from

Stephen, Elke, Kerry and Daniel
