Irish Quarry Register (one-off process in 2004), by County, for all Counties (awaiting some registers)

In 2004, Section 261 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 introduced a once-off system of registration for all quarries, except those for which planning permission was granted in the previous five years.

Under the registration system, quarry operators were required to supply full details of their operations to the planning authority. This information had to be submitted by 27 April 2005.

Following the registration of the quarry, the planning authority could:

Note: only a % of local authorities currently publish a Quarry Register online. There is no standard format for publishing, and only a % publish with quarry maps.

The findings of a nationwide survey of local authorities carried out by RTÉ Investigates showed that 151 quarries are deemed to be unauthorised developments.

The counties with the most unauthorised quarries were:
Galway with 12  
Waterford with 17
Cork with 19
Kerry with 26
Donegal with 30
