What about unenforced law that is usually ignored at Halloween?
The FCP had years to report on the 2014 review of firearms, to include, their review proposal for expanding on the 2011 pilot scheme that granted reloading ammunition at one specific authorised range in Ireland. To think so many young people disregard the law on fireworks, loaded with a charge of black powder, an explosive - that they ignore it without fear, because generally, it is not enforced. Meanwhile south of the border, safe smokeless propellant, remains out of reach to the majority of already vetted and approved licensed members of the shooting community. What is the use having sporting representatives that take four years to deliver on an advancement for upgrading the old gunpower explosive act of 1875.

"Emergency services impacted by rise in illegal fireworks"

Morning Ireland RTE Radio 1 - 22/10/2018 ... fireworks/

Interview with Newry Fireworks Specialist, just a few feet over the border in northern Ireland. Thomas McKevitt, who owns the Firework Specialist store in Newry, said the laws in Ireland are leading to sales on the black market. Under Part 6 of the Criminal Justice Act 2006, which amended the Explosives Act 1875, the Gardaí have the power to make arrests in relation to possession of unlicensed fireworks.

Ireland, quote:"It is the only country in Europe that doesn't sell fireworks over the counter. It is totally ridiculous. They have criminalised them for no apparent reason."

'Illegal trade trade in fireworks in Ireland are growing by the year that saw the largest amount of firework seizures in five years occurred in 2017. Ireland has some of the most restrictive fireworks laws across the EU, yet the illegal trade is booming'

According to the firework specialiasts, black market fireworks in southern Ireland can be stored loose in back garden sheds. This can cause the black powder in the firework to become damp, effecting ignition with the possibility of premature detonation from the powder drying unevenly. He called for firework specialists to be able to sell tested fireworks that comply with the relevant CE mark that show that the firework meets European safety standards, which all fireworks must meet, similar to how N.Ireland's, dep of justice explosive branch, issue an 'outdoor fireworks license' to members of the 'general public', rather than see the illegal trade in fireworks keep growing from imported non-CE marked sources that can be dangerous to use.

In Ireland Fireworks in all categories other than indoor fireworks are more dangerous and can only be used by professional operators in organised displays, not by the general public. These fireworks include rockets, roman candles and aerial wheels. If you want to organise a display of this type of fireworks, you must use a professional fireworks operator.

Bangers are not in Category F1 and it is illegal for the general public to import, possess or use them.


The Explosives (Fireworks) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2002 as amended by the Pyrotechnic Articles (Safety) Regulations 2015 ... icence.pdf

Application for a licence to purchase, possess and use Category F2 fireworks (outdoor fireworks!)

Explanatory Notes
Please read these notes carefully and retain them for your information
• A licence is not required if you want to purchase, possess and use fireworks classified under category F1 (suitable for indoor use) or sparklers classified under Category F2 (suitable for use in the average garden). You must have a licence before you can purchase, possess and use any other type of fireworks – that is, those classified under categories F2, F3 or F4 of Schedule 1 of the Pyrotechnic Articles (Safety) Regulations 2015. There is a separate application form for category F3 and F4 fireworks.
• The applicant is normally the person purchasing, possessing and using the fireworks.
• The licence is only valid for the period stated on it.
• We will not normally issue a licence for fireworks to be used between 11pm and 7am

Where the number of persons at your fireworks display will be:
• Fewer than 100, the fee is £30.
• 100 or more but fewer than 1000, the fee is £80.
• More than 1000, the fee is £160.
