    I presume you are having issues with refusals? Have you met face to face with the super in your area? Any solicitor should be able to advise you but I would make sure you have exhausted all other avenues before taking that route.

    Is it hunting licensing or gun application/renewal issues you need help with?

    +1. It also looks better if it hits the courts, that you were willing to meet and discuss the issue with the issuing officer.

    Have you received your refusal in writing or have you just been told 'word of mouth'?

    Speak to your local FO (Station Firearms Officer), find out what's the problem/issue.

    Ensure you get refusal reasons word of mouth from the Local FO.

    Ensure you get official refusal reasons in writing from the Local Super.

    Request a meeting with the Local Super to discuss the issues with a view to solving the issues.

    If no joy, appeal in writing to the Local Super, ensure that you receive a written reply.

    If still no grant of license and your are a member of local game club or authorized range, speak to them and they may be able to help you out.

    If still no grant of license, seek further advise/legal advise.

    Another avenue if you get a silly refusal letter like i did is to contact the firearms policy unit and ask is it garda policy to refuse on X basis , they cannot change a supers decision however if the decision is in contrary to the law as mine was they make have a quiet word with the super prior to the court route
    This is last resort prior to court
