Freedom of Information

What is Freedom of Information?

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2014 gives applicants the right to access records held by FOI bodies. Applicants have the right to;

  • access official records held by Government Departments or other public bodies as defined by the act;
  • the right to have personal information held on them corrected or updated where such information is incomplete, incorrect or misleading
  • the right to be given reasons for decisions taken by public bodies that affect.

These rights are subject to certain exemptions which are set out in the Freedom of Information Act 2014.

Tailte Éireann is currently developing a consolidated policy on Freedom of Information.  In the meantime, links to existing resources in the three functional areas of Tailte Éireann are set out below.
