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.
FIE regularly broadcasts podcasts, press releases and news letters on a wide range of environmental issues such as fracking, fisheries, peatlands, forestry, marine and EU law. Visit their ‘FIE Work’ page for their most recent releases and About Us page for a list of their campaigns.
