Leaflet ...

Use of metal detection devices and their impact on our archaeological heritage

These guidelines have been produced in response to increased reports of illegal metal detecting and concerns raised about the adverse consequences for Ireland's archaeological heritage.

The purpose of the guidelines is to advise individuals and groups of the statutory provisions governing metal detecting and archaeological finds. The guidelines clarify the position in relation to unintentional breaches of the law and set out the consequences of failing to comply with the relevant terms of the National Monuments Acts 1930 - 2004.

An Garda Siochana fulfils a critical role in relation to illegal metal detecting from an enforcement perspective and the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht considers the availability of the advice leaflet to the public in all Garda stations countrywide worthwhile.

New penalties for texting while driving come into force.

From Thursday 1st May 2014 motorists convicted of sending a text message or email while driving will face tough new penalties and a compulsory court appearance. 

Sending a text message while driving is one of the most dangerous things that any motorist can do. Drivers who send messages while driving spend up to 400% more time with their eyes off the road. It’s lethal behaviour, even when stopped in traffic, and it’s in all our interests to put the phone away while driving.
