Irish Beach Angling Ban

Aug 30,2007 SACN


Proposed Angling Ban in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown

Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council  are proposing to ban angling from ALL of its shoreline, with the exception of Bullock and Colliemore Harbours.

1)This is utterly unnecessary, there is almost no real conflict between swimmers and anglers.

2) There have been no serious accidents or incidents between swimmers and anglers

3) Anglers tend to use the beaches most at times when there is little or no swimming

4) Where there are demonstrable difficulties, anglers would be quite happy to restrict their use of the beach at particular times in particular places, the problem is with a blanket ban, and only designated exceptions to that ban

5) This is an issue of personal freedom, and the proposed by-law is an unnecessary restiction of our freedoms.

6) A note to the councillors-Anglers are passionate about anging and will vote on that basis, few swimmers have any problem with anglers and a ban like this will not gain any votes

7) Sea-angling is becoming a major tourist activity

8) There was no consultation with the Fisheries Boards, Tourist Board, local Angling Clubs, or for that matter the Blue Flag section of An Taisce.

We would encourage all anglers, particularly those in Dun Laoghaire Rathdown, to object to these proposed by laws.
