Government Promises Review Of Seaweed Harvesting Rights

#Seaweed - Minister of State Kathleen Lynch has promised to review legislation pertaining to right for harvesting seaweed in Connemara over recent local concerns over commercial interests in the region.

As previously reported on Afloat.ie, coastal communities north of Galway Bay fear their rights to the traditional activity would be threatened by allowing larger businesses - such as the State-owned Arramara Teoranta - to move in.

Now Galway Bay FM reports that the Department of Environment has admitted there is a conflict between the Foreshore Act and the rights of private landowners on the coastline. More on the story HERE.
