Carlingford Lough Tourism

Carlingford Lough Tourism

Loughs Agency is an agency of the Foyle, Carlingford and Irish Lights Commission (FCILC). It was set up as one of the cross-border bodies under the 1998 Agreement between the Government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Government of Ireland.

The Agency provides sustainable social, economic and environmental benefits. We do this through the effective conservation, management, promotion and development of the fisheries and marine resources of the Foyle and Carlingford areas.

The Agency has a number of strategic and operational functions. These are set out in the North/South Co-operation (Implementation Bodies) (NI) Order 1999, the British-Irish Agreement Act 1999, the Foyle Fisheries Act (NI) 1952 (as amended) and the Foyle Fisheries Act 1952 (as amended).
