Signage among language complaints
17 Apr 2014 06:06
Concerns about signage, written correspondence and communication made up the bulk of complaints to the office of An Coimisinéir Teanga last year.
-
The office deals with difficulties people have in obtaining services through Irish from public bodies.
-
Its annual report for 2013 shows just over 700 complaints were made.
-
Among the issues reported were concerns about official documentation, an absence of Irish language signage and difficulties people had giving their name or address in Irish to State bodies.
-
The majority of complaints related to Government Departments and local authorities. Almost 40% were made by people living in Co Dublin. A quarter came from Gaeltacht areas.
