Freedom of information

The Freedom of Information Acts 2014 gives you the legal right:

  • To access your personal records and other official records of Dublin City Council
  • To correct or update personal information held about you by Dublin City Council, where this information is incomplete, incorrect or misleading
  • To be given the reasons behind any decisions taken by Dublin City Council that affect you

The Freedom of Information Act 2014 gives you a legal right to request any recorded information held by Dublin City Council

  • You can ask for any information you think the council may hold. The right only covers recorded information.
  • Your request can be in the form of a question, but the council does not have to answer your question if this would mean creating a new record or giving an opinion or judgement that is not already recorded.
  • You should clearly identify the information you want.
  • Some information may not be given to you because it is exempt, for example because it would unfairly reveal personal details about another person.
