Support for avoiding changes to Night Time Hunting/Shooting Ban in Ireland sign now

We are looking for Support in avoiding changes to Night Time Hunting/Shooting Ban in Ireland.

The National Association of Regional Game Councils (NARGC) were represented at the Firearms Consultative Panel (FCP) Meeting on the 20th April 2017, by our National Chairman Michael Fenlon, and Compensation Fund Administrator, Chris Gavican.  We believe that we received a place at the table just in time to temporarily stop proposed changes that would substantially diminish our traditional sporting rights.

Briefly this report proposes to;

Amend the Garda Commissioners Guidelines to include the following.

(Garda Superintendents, Chief Superintendents, must issue licenses in accordance with these Guidelines)

No Hunting / Shooting to take place between 12.00 am  –  6.00 am,  from 1st  September  to  31st  March

(Only exceptions, actual attack by dogs, or under licence Sec. 42)

This curfew will be written on your licence. (Unless you look for it not to be, Sec. 42 etc.) During all other darkness hours (other than curfew times above) you should notify the landowner of your starting and finishing time before commencing. Hunters / Shooters should inform the local Garda station or nearest  24 hour station in the Garda District, prior to commencement of shooting during hours of darkness.

Please note this relates to all hunting / shooting,  with shotgun or Rifle.   No Duck/Geese shooting would be permitted during these hours also, although authorised under the wildlife Act 1976.
