BAI calls for representations on its second Irish Language Scheme

The Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI) is calling for representations in relation to the revision of its second Irish Language Scheme.

The BAI is seeking submissions from all interested parties in the context of a review of the scheme and the preparation of a new draft scheme in accordance with Section 15 of the Official Languages Act 2003. The primary objective of the Official Languages Act is to ensure better availability and a higher standard of public services through Irish.

Ideally, submissions should not exceed 4,000 words (ca 8 pages) and should be written and sent electronically to by Thursday, 26th September 2019.

Alternatively, submissions may be posted to:
Fionnuala Murphy
Broadcasting Authority of Ireland
2-5 Warrington Place
Dublin 2

All submissions will be made available on the BAI’s website.

A copy of the current scheme is available here.

Further information in relation to the Official Languages Act is available on the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht website
