Dog Control and Tagging

We have had two recent cases reported to us of a dog attacking a cat and another case injuring another dog on a lead. In both cases the dogs were accompanied by their owners but not on a lead. We would request that dog owners on the estate to please be a bit more considerate to other path users and home owners and please keep their dogs on leads at all times in the estate. We would also like to remind residents that, since the end of March, it is now the law forĀ allĀ dogs in Ireland to be micro-chipped and registered on a government approved database. The committee encourages all dog owners to comply with this legislation in the interests of responsible pet ownership.
