Survey on land boundaries
Boundary disputes have caused countries to be divided, towns to be split up and neighbours to fall out.
I am Daragh O'Brien from Dublin Institute of Technology (Department of Spatial Information Science).
I am undertaking a PhD research project investigating the causes and incidence of boundary disputes. This research is attempting to identify what is causing the different types of boundary disputes and develop solutions to minimise their incidence, together with examination of case studies and analysis of financial cost to the economy.
As part of the research I am conducting a survey of Irish land/property owners. I wish to collect information on the landowners' knowledge of their boundaries and an overall perspective of how property boundaries are perceived.
I am seeking interested parties to complete a questionnaire in this regard.
The survey is broken into two separate questionnaires, rural and urban, and can be found on www.boundarydisp- utesireland.com. All information received will be held anonymously and will be stored and used in strict confidence to be used exclusively for this research.
If you do not have access to the internet and would like to take part, please request a questionnaire by post to Daragh O'Brien, Room C32, DIT Zhivago Building, Bolton Street, Dublin 1.
