Firearms and Knives Policy

We do not allow ads for any type of firearms, knives, swords, weapons, fireworks or other related goods (including replicas) on DoneDeal.ie.  If ads are posted on DoneDeal.ie in breach of this policy we reserve the right to remove them from the Website without giving notice to the advertiser or refunding any fee paid.

The prohibition above includes any firearm or weapon referred to in the Firearms and Offensive Weapons Act 1990 including, but not limited to, the following goods: flick-knives, knuckledusters, swordsticks, sword umbrellas, hand and foot claws, belt buckle knives, pushdaggers, hollow kubotans, shurikens, butterfly knives, telescopic truncheons, blowpipes, kusari gama, kyoketsu shoge, manrikigusari, sap gloves and machetes.

Knives and swords were restricted on DoneDeal.ie in September 2009, when the Firearms and Offensive Weapons Act 1990 (the “Act”) was amended by the Firearms and Offensive Weapons Act 1990 (Offensive Weapons) (Amendments) Order 2009. The Act allows for certain types of knives and collectible swords to be legally sold, but to avoid confusion we have decided not to allow any type of knives or swords to be advertised on DoneDeal.ie.

The prohibition above also includes airsoft guns and similar items.
