The Shannon Regional Fisheries Board have also produced a multilingual guide to the coarse and pike angling laws. Copies can be ordered online on the SHRFB website.

Leaflets such as these are a particularly good addition to literature that “Section 294 Waterkeepers” should have in carrying out their role. Link below:

David,
Any sign of the Nortern doing anything (at all)?

John,

Due to particular concerns at local club level, a letter was sent to the CEO Harry Lloyd, and the coarse angling representatives, Terry Sheridan and Brendan Coulter to be raised at the June board meeting questioning the present publicity avenues of the Northern Board. I believe the meeting was last week, so I expect a response of some sort shortly.

The Northern Board were the first I believe to translate the superseded pike laws and have been very active in the courts of late, due to the efforts of a number of officers. This has certainly redressed the earlier despondency of the summer of 2005 where an inspector failed to bring charges against individuals with illegal instruments; dead pike and tench in the boot of a car which had been stopped at a garda checkpoint and subsequently reported to the board. You may recall John Chambers report on here at that time in which IFPAC promised financial support if a case was taken. Unfortunately we were not taken up. That was then. Things now appear to have changed for the better and the efforts of the board are welcome and appreciated. A significant amount of ongoing education is still required though to get fisheries officers off the back foot.
