Abstract

These Regulations correct the implementation in Ireland of Council Directive 92/43/EEC. They provide that carrying out recreational activities likely to damage a European nature site is an offence and empower the Minister to take measures to address the threats posed to sites and species by such activities and to prohibit or regulate any recreational activities in areas where their use is likely to damage sites or species protected under Council Directive 92/43/EEC or Directive 2009/147/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council.
