Mooring Warning for Lough Erne Public Jetties

22nd April 2010
Mooring Warning for Lough Erne Public Jetties
As the inland waterways boating season begins Waterways Ireland has highlighted to waterways users the mooring byelaws applicable on Lough Erne.

Waterways Ireland provides public moorings for craft moving along the navigations. Craft movement facilitates greater tourism and recreational income into the towns and villages along the navigations. With almost 5000 boats registered on Lough Erne, regular craft movement has become even more important.

The Lough Erne bye-laws allow mooring at a public jetty for a maximum period of 48 hours.

As a result of continual breaches of the mooring bye-laws, Waterways Ireland intends to take a firmer approach to the growing problem. In future, persistent offenders will be prosecuted using the penalties set out in the Lough Erne Bye Laws (Northern Ireland) 1978.

For further information on the navigation bye-laws, or to speak to a member of the Inspectorate, please contact Waterways Ireland on Tel(0)28 6632 2836. A brief guide to Good Boating is downloadable from www.waterwaysireland.org and then click on navigation; charts and guides.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
