Written answers (Question to Housing)

With regard to the use of fishing/pleasure boats at the site mentioned my Department does not issue new permanent mooring spots. There are, however, 20 boat moorings on the Lakes and these moorings are subject to a local lottery and are allocated annually for a twelve month period. This remains the official policy of the Department.

It is not permitted generally to sell moorings on the lake and if you have specific information in that regard I would ask that you report it to the duty officer in Killarney National Park and my Department will follow up.
