Coillte and AIrsoft permits

    I’m lucky enough to live right next to 100 acres of lush woodland. I have spent many days shooting horse riding and walking this Forrest. Recently 3D archery has set up camp here. Marking out new walkways, signage and a clubhouse. They have done a fantastic job in keeping this all somewhat hidden from the path or route through and around the Forrest. I have recently got into airsoft and tried to acquire a permit from coillte for use of the Forrest for a small airsoft club. I received the bad news that coillte don’t do a permit for airsoft. Why is that I wonder? I mean they will allow arrows fly through the Forrest that could potentially kill someone but not a biodegradable B.B.. how is it that some airsoft parks around the country are set in Forrest’s painballing included. Any information outside of coillte on this matter would be much appreciated.
