These licences shall be deemed to an aquaculture licence granted under the Fisheries (Amendment) Act of 1997. Specific conditions are set out for the procedures of granting a foreshore licence deemed to be an aquaculture licence under the 1997 Act. These conditions concern representations that may be made, publication, granting of draft licences, etc. An application for an aquaculture licence shall not be accepted, or if accepted shall not be determined, if the applicant or any person on behalf of the applicant commences to engage in aquaculture at the place or waters to which the application relates before a licence is granted under the Act of 1997. Amendments of the 1933 Act further concern offences and penalties. The Fishery Harbour Centres Act, 1968 is amended in provisions granting the Minister the power to use property vested in the Minister including the power to sell, lease, let, exchange, grant easements over, profits à prendre in respect of or permit the use of any land so vested for any of those purposes which the Minister considers appropriate.

Celtic tribes arrived on the island between 600 and 150 B.C. Invasions by Norsemen that began in the late 8th century were finally ended when King Brian BORU defeated the Danes in 1014. Norman invasions began in the 12th century and set off more than seven centuries of Anglo-Irish struggle marked by fierce rebellions and harsh repressions. The Irish famine of the mid-19th century saw the population of the island drop by one third through starvation and emigration. For more than a century after that the population of the island continued to fall only to begin growing again in the 1960s.
