Fingal Dog Owners Group (Fingal D.O.G) hold a protest march last Month through Malahide village in opposition to the dog ‘off-leash’ bye-law  by Fingal County Council which restricts off-leash activity to to designated fenced-in areas and specific times (in smaller parks).

This evening.

A public meeting to discuss a dog off-leash by-law is to be held in Fingal County Council.

All 40 Fingal County Councillors will attend the meeting later.

They are to discuss with the residents and dog owners the adoption of the controversial by-law, which was introduced last June.

There is growing public demand to reverse the by-law as it prohibits people from walking their dogs off their leads between 11am and one hour before dusk in some public parks
