New Chief Executive for Inland Fisheries
Mr Conor Lenihan, TD, Minister of State at the Department of Communications Energy & Natural Resources, has announced the appointment, on the recommendation of the Public Appointments Service, of Dr Ciaran Byrne as Chief Executive Designate of Inland Fisheries Ireland with effect from 1 August 2009.

Following on from the announcement of the overall rationalisation of State agencies, the Government has formally approved proposals for the restructuring of the inland fisheries sector. 

Inland Fisheries Ireland will be established, following the amalgamation of the Central and seven regional fisheries boards, by the enactment of new legislation to be approved by the Oireachtas before the end of the year.

Dr Byrne will be seconded to the role from his current position of CEO of the Central Fisheries Board. His immediate task will be to prepare the fisheries boards for the transition to the new organisation.

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.
