Irish Language

South Dublin County Council - Fourth Irish Language Scheme 2020 - 2023

South Dublin County Council recognises that the public has a right to do their business in their preferred language and that they will be facilitated, in their dealings with us, whether in English or Irish. Under the Official Languages Act 2003 customers are entitled to specific services through the Irish Language including a response to correspondence in Irish and the availability of major publications in Irish e.g. Annual Report. The main objective of this Language Scheme is to ensure higher standards of public service through the Irish Language as the national and the first official language of the country. The Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media has confirmed this scheme and it shall remain in force for a period of 3 years. If you have any questions or suggestions please email

Irish language events will be posted on the Council's events page and listed below.
