Metal detecting

Advice on use of devices

National Museum of Ireland

The following leaflet was produced by the National Museum of Ireland to advise the public on the use of metal detection devices. Please note it is against the law to engage in general searches for archaeological objects in Ireland using a metal detecting device unless you have received written consent from the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage. To do so without such consent places you at risk of prosecution. The onus is on the operator to ensure that a metal detector is used in accordance with the law.
