Freedom of Information

A combined guide issued in accordance with Sections 15 and 16 of the Freedom of Information Acts 1997 and 2003.


This gives details about the Houses of the Oireachtas Commission and Service, their functions and records, and how to make an FoI application.

This guide has been updated to reflect changes regarding fees due to the implementation of the new FOI Act 2014.

A new publication scheme will be produced and available on this website in 2015.
