Legislate now to Ban Oil and Gas Drilling off Irish Coast
During the summer legislation to ban licences for new oil and natural gas exploration was introduced as part of the Climate Action and Low Carbon Amendment Bill. Although this legislation will not affect existing licenses that have already been granted, it does mark a major achievement as Ireland is one of only several countries to have introduced similar legislation.
We are closing the public aspects of the campaign but NHNA will continue to make submissions to the existing licences.
This campaign will always have a special place in our heart as it led to the establishment of our group back in the summer of 2017. We would also like to thank all the other amazing groups, ngos, political parties, politicians and individuals who were involved in the campaign.
