I am hoping to get to Ireland for the Sika rut in early October on a friends land.
I Have just downloaded the forms which seem quite simple except for one thing... The one that goes to the guarda /police (Non resident firearm certificate) requires that I give a time and place of departure and arrival. I don't know this yet as I am told that the certificate can take weeks to turn up (about how long does it usualy take?) . Why doesn't it cover a broader period of time and will I have to do it again if I wish to travel over later in the year or the beginning of next. Shall I just put in a date when I am hoping to travel . When the certificate arrives is it that specific.
The other form for the wildlife dept seem to cover you for the season which seems more sensible.
Any help much appreciated George
