There are currently three vacancies on the CIÉ Board. 

In line with Government's guidelines on Appointment to State Boards and my Department's agreed protocols on board appointments, the CIÉ Board positions were recently advertised by the Public Appointments Service, with a closing date of the 9th of January 2019.

A shortlisting process is expected to commence shortly, after which a number of candidates will be submitted for my consideration and appointment.  I expect that the process will be complete and appointments made in the coming weeks.
