In June of 2008 Northern Ireland Reef Club achieved official recognition from UltimateReef.com (UR). Our recognition came in the form of our own forum hosted on their bulletin boards.
From the depths of UR a couple of guys discovered their whereabouts to be within a stones throw away from each other! With that in mind, meeting up at Local Fish Store's (LFS) was starting to become a regular occurrence. UltimateReef.com provided the opportunity to communicate between each other and new friends to the group. The ears on the ground picked up on the popularity of reef keeping in Northern Ireland was growing fast and, with the guidance of an elected committee, we set up a forum for which has become the platform for Northern Ireland Reef Club to build upon!
The future of the Northern Ireland Reef Club, like many things, is unpredictable. But rest assured, as long as our members remain enthusiastic about reef-keeping NIRC will be around for the enduring distance! Thank you to all who take part.
What can we do for you? NIRC is devoted to its members, the conservation of reef-keeping, sharing good practice and helping those in desperate need (when fighting algae with a stick is no longer an option, haha).
