Irish Language Scheme

The Official Languages Act 2003 provides for the preparation by public bodies of a language scheme detailing the services which they will provide:

  • through the medium of Irish,
  • through the medium of English, and
  • through the medium of Irish and English

and the measures to be adopted to ensure that any of the services identified in the scheme not currently provided through the medium of the Irish language will be so provided within an agreed timeframe. In accordance with section 14(3) of the Act, language schemes remain in force for a period of 3 years or until such time as a new scheme is confirmed by the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, whichever is the later.
