This second Irish Language Scheme was prepared under Section 11 of the Official Languages Act 2003 ("the Act") by the Office of the Commission for Public Service Appointments.

Section 11 provides for the preparation by public bodies of a statutory scheme detailing the services they will provide

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

and the measures to be adopted to ensure that any service not provided by the body through the medium of the Irish Language will be so provided within an agreed time frame.
