Lough Foyle - Disputed Status

Disputed Status

Lough Foyle is a disputed territory between the Republic of Ireland and the U.K. After the Partition of Ireland in 1922 both sides claimed that it was in their own territory. Although this dispute is still on going there are currently no negotiations as to its ownership. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office underlined its view on 2 June 2009 that all of Lough Foyle is in the United Kingdom, a spokesperson stating: 'The UK position is that the whole of Lough Foyle is within the UK.

The regulation of activities in the Lough is now the responsibility of the Loughs Agency, a cross-border body established under the Belfast Agreement of 1998.'
