SACs and cSACs in Northern Ireland which adjoin SACs in the Republic of Ireland

 

As described in Section 1.1, each Member State is required to prepare and propose to the European Commission a national list of sites for each of the Habitats Directive features which occurs in their European territory. While selection and submission of sites within national territory is the responsibility of individual Member States, natural areas which cross territorial borders may be included in separate but adjoining SACs proposed by more than one Member State. Several SACs within the UK (all in Northern Ireland) adjoin SACs in the Republic of Ireland, as follows:
