Friends of the Irish Environment

Friends of the Irish Environment was established in 1997 to create and maintain a network of conservationists and environmentalists in Ireland to:

  • monitor the full implementation of, and to assist in the development of, European law;
  • work for changes in the Irish planning laws;
  • encourage the implementation of the right to full public participation;
  • provide assistance to individuals, local groups, and the wider public in understanding environmental issues;
  • seek proper implementation of environmental and planning law to support sustainable communities including the pursuit of concerns and cases in both the built and the natural environment.
