Property Registration Authority of Ireland (PRAI) – Free Interactive Map

17th January 2012

The PRAI provides a comprehensive and secure system of land registration and can be used to access folio numbers, site areas, burdens and ownership. In 2011, the PRAI have launched a new free map viewer on their website for Non-Account Holders. The map allows any member of the public to identify folio numbers, site areas, site boundaries, number of plans and burdens for free. They have also set up a simple credit card payment system to access copies of the registered folio.

Free Public Interactive Maps – Environment and Wind Resources

16th January 2012

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) and National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) have both recently updated their online resources. Currently, one of the best resources on each website is a free interactive map that anyone can access to find out information on their location within the country.

The SEAI Map Viewer contains information on the Irish Wind Atlas, on-shore/off-shore wind resources, environmental designations, constraint areas and more.


The NPWS Map Viewer contains detailed information on environmental designations throughout the country such as:

–              Special Areas of Conservation (SAC)

–              Special Protection Areas (SPA)

–              Natural Heritage Areas (NHA)


They also allow selection of individual townlands to quickly identify local environmental designations.
