Consultation on the future use of the Sulby Claddagh

Closed 26 May 2023

Opened 18 Apr 2023

Results updated 24 Oct 2023



The Department of Environment, Food and Agriculure (DEFA) is seeking the views of the public, Local Authorities and other interest groups on the future use of Sulby Claddagh.

It is imperative that we find a satisfactory future management option for the Claddagh. However, with its unique status, history and geographical location, the Sulby Claddagh has potential to be enhanced and promoted for the benefit of all. An opportunity exists to ensure the Claddagh maintains and improves upon its ‘sense of place’. 

The Department would welcome your comments on the above proposals, including any other issues or ideas that should be borne in mind when formulating a future plan for the Sulby Claddagh. 

The Department will consider all responses and will take a balanced view in formulating a future plan.
