Casual trading in the Dublin City Council area is regulated by Casual Trading bye-laws made under the Casual Trading Act 1995 .  A casual trading licence is a requirement under the Casual Trading Act to sell goods on the public road.  It is an offence under this Act to trade without a valid casual trading licence.
Casual trading is divided into Designated area trading and Event trading.
