AOIFA - About Us


The Association of Irish Floral Artists (AOIFA), which was founded in 1973, is the official organisation of Floral Art Groups and Flower and Garden Clubs in Ireland. Its objectives are to bring together members of these clubs for artistic development and for cultural and educational purposes. Clubs usually meet one night a month and host flower demonstrations or gardening talks. Other activities include classes, flower competitions, shows and garden visits. Our motto is “Friendship through Flowers”. There are more than eighty clubs scattered all over the country. If you would like to find out which club is nearest to you please check out our Clubs page or contact AOIFA secretary Sharon O'Sullivan at

AOIFA is affiliated to the World Association of Flower Arrangers and the National Association for Flower Arranging Societies
