Shotgun use near my house

    Hi,
    I live in a remote house,about 100m from a laneway.......in recent time times I’ve noted shotguns goin off at the top of my drive at times ranging from 8pm to 12am at night....I checked out last week and noted pellets dropping on a hedge at the front of my garden.....in retrospect I believe these could have dropped on my roof in the past,.....it’s got to the stage where my eldest is greeting spooked at these goings on!

    ......I initially thought it might have been local farmers however when the shooters became aware of my presence they drove off,at relative haste from the top of my drive


    My question is this: are there any firearm regulations governing the use of firearms at night within range of my house?.!

    If you have concerns ring the local Gaurds.

    If they're on a public road or your property then I'd seriously be calling the Gardai.

    If it's regular set up a trail cam in area to see can you pick up something, they may well be hunting but this must be done safely.

    Call the Garda bring in the pellets you need number plate of car

    Under section 44 of the Wildlife Act 1976, it is an offence for a person who is not the owner or occupier of land, without the permission of the owner or occupier, or the permission of a person who enjoys sporting rights over the land:

    Absolutely not, notify the Gardai and let them deal with it.

    Well, as you have stated (being CSI Qualified, knowing the difference between shotgun, rifle or pistol and "GOING OFF", with pellets dropping in my hedge (only on a weekly basis) or maybe never before, I want to complain about something that never happens, or maybe it does happen sometimes when I'm not here and I'm not sure if it happens and what about the bottom of your driveway.
