Online Purchase of Canal Permits now available on Waterways Ireland website.

All permits will run until the 31st October 2019 whereupon they will move to annual renewal from the 1st November each year. A copy of the boat insurance (3rd party minimum) and a photo of the vessel will be needed in order to complete the application.  Applicants can decide to print their own permit or have a hard copy posted out to their declared address. Submitted applications will receive an acknowledgement email and once approved an online link will be emailed to facilitate payment.
