State Laws and Coillte Bye-Laws
There is no State Law or Coillte Bye-Law that says dogs must be kept on leads … “effectual control” is the requirement
13. Subject to Bye-law 14 a person shall not cause or allow a dog to be on Coillte lands without it being kept under effectual control as required under the Control of Dogs Act 1986 (No. 32 of 1986).
