Dog Licences


Do you have a dog? If so, you need a licence - under the Control of Dogs Act 1986 all dog owners are required to have a dog licence. Dog licences may be purchased from your local An Post office. All you need to do is drop into your local Post Office and buy your dog licence over the counter. A Dog Licence costs €20.00 from your local Post Office .  A Lifetime Dog Licence costs €140.00 and General Dog Licence for 10 or more dogs costs €400.00.  Both the Lifetime Dog Licence and General Dog Licence can only be purchased through the offices of Meath County Council, Buvinda House, Dublin Road, Navan, Co Meath, C15 Y291.
