Dept Ag

Big it up for the Lands Branch (who knew?) of the Dept of Ag, which responded immesiately to tell me that the fishing rights in my garden are owned by the Central Fisheries Board, which is called something else these days, so we know it’s much more efficient.

If only the DeptAg folk in charge of Section 46 of the Merchant Shipping (Investigation of Marine Casualties) Act 2000 were as quick to respond as their Lands Branch colleagues.

Our deeds determine us …

… and Waterways Ireland wants to digitise its deeds:

Waterways Ireland house, in secure storage, an important collection of deeds / documents, in paper format, that relate to their assets and land interests throughout Ireland. Waterways Ireland wishes to appoint a service provider to digitise these on a rolling basis. […]

The deeds are broadly of two types:

– Multi-page land transfer deeds which are usually A3-A4 in size and stapled or bound. Many are DL folded.

– Large format title deeds, dating from late 18th century onwards. These are generally on velum, folded and A2 or greater in size.

Other maps and documents which may be required to size A0 and larger.

Incidentally, WI should decide whether it is, er, singular or plural.
