Maigue Rivers Trust (Limerick)

The Maigue Rivers Trust grew out of a pilot project on the River Loobagh which was run in 2015. The local farmers, anglers community groups and interested individuals got together with the Inland Fisheries Ireland and Limerick City and County Council to explore a new way of looking after our rivers and lakes. They wanted to find a way that didn’t rely on regulations, but rather on the community becoming stewards of their local waterways.
