Inland Fisheries Ireland said that it regards the Mulkear River as a high priority in protecting and conserving the numbers of salmon returning to the catchment. The IFI has been criticised by the local Mulcair & District Anglers Club, which has called upon the ESB to take back responsibility for policing the river. The ESB said it has renewed the IFI’s contract. The ESB noted that the IFI, being the state agency charged with the protection of inland fisheries, is the group best placed to provide this protection service.
