My Department has not received any application under the Foreshore Act on this matter. On the basis of the Ordnance Survey Ireland (OSI) Historic 25" Map, the lands do not appear to be foreshore. This matter may be more appropriate to Inland Fisheries Ireland which has responsibility for the protection, management and conservation of Ireland's inland fisheries and sea angling resources, including its 128,000 hectares of lakes. Inland Fisheries Ireland falls under the remit of my colleague, the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment.
