Public meetings to discuss your local waters in the context of the draft River Basin Management Plan for Ireland 2018 – 2021 will be held over the coming weeks in locations right across the country.  At these meetings, discussions will include topics such as heritage, water quality, angling, biodiversity, agriculture, recreational use, tourism etc. This new approach will allow local communities have a greater say in the management of our natural waters, now and into the future.

Information on the latest draft national plan will also be presented, with details on how you can have a say and input into the final plan. There is now an opportunity to share Your local knowledge and experience on the waters of your area.  For dates and venues of meetings close to you see  below.
