Applications in Zone H are generally suitable only for those with a direct economic link tot he landscape and even then there are other restrictions. Other authorities are following the move by Clare and others to preclude those without a birthright and/or without Irish as a spoken language. This later issue has yet to be tested constitutionally but on the face of it is discriminatory. It s likely that Zone H will be subject to further restrictions especially when Europe force Ireland to apply the legislation they have already adopted in respect to SACs and other initiatives. Do not believe an estate agent. Ask the planners directly. They are obliged to inform you of the rights, responsibilities and possibilities for planning.
