Question: Councillor D. Smith:
“To ask the Chief Executive if he would support the provision of a
designated RC area in the proposed Swords Regional Park to allow
drone enthusiasts engage in their hobby in a controlled environment
and in accordance with IAA requirements (max altitude 15m, weight
under 1kg)?”


The Council would be happy to engage with an organised group of drone
enthusiasts to assess their requirements and to determine if and how
best these requirements can be accommodated in one of our parks
having regard to the provisions of the Parks and Open Spaces Bye-laws.
It should be noted that parts of Swords are designated as “No Drone
Zones” by the Irish Aviation Authority on account of their proximity to
Dublin Airport.
