The Council is committed in its endeavours to promote the Irish language and the rich culture of Ireland in both the Council and the surrounding area.
The Irish Language Scheme was prepared under Section 15 of the Official Languages Act, 2003 by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council. Section 11 provides for the preparation by a public body of a statutory Scheme specifying the services in Irish it proposes to provide to the public.
The Scheme sets out the measures that will be implemented in relation to the services which will be provided through the medium of Irish during the life of the Scheme.
