Following the HSE and the Government’s advice in relation to the delay of COVID-19, Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) has put in place a number of measures to maximise our capacity to continue to deliver our business and statutory services to the public.

All main River Basin District (RBD) offices remain open with a minimum staff complement. IFI strongly encourages the public to engage with IFI using email, telephone and letter. IFI has requested that office-based staff, if possible, work from home. In the circumstances, there may be delays in replying to queries. Contact details are available at the Contact us tab.

IFI field staff continue normal operations bearing in mind current HSE advice.

IFI staff may attend meetings remotely only (e-meetings, conference calls etc).

Those wishing to purchase licences or permits, pay bills or undertake other financial transactions with IFI are requested to do so online, via telephone, bank transfer or by post.

IFI has a 24 hour confidential hotline through which members of the public may report incidents of illegal fishing, water pollution and invasive species which will continue to operate.
