Feargal Quinn Introduces Drone Regulation Bill in Seanad


Independent Senator Feargal Quinn introduced a private members bill in Seanad Éireann last night “to regulate the use of drones having due regard for public safety, the privacy rights of individuals including rights of privacy attaching to the ownership of private property“.

The Irish Times reports that the bill would make it “an offence to fly a drone over another person’s home and bans the flight of drones within 200m of sport events, concerts and scenes of emergency”.

New Irish Aviation Authority regulations governing the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) were introduced last month by a Statutory Instrument. Since December 21, all drones over 1kg must be registered with the IIA.
