Placenames Order (County Laois)
Under the provisions of Part 5 of the Official Languages Act 2003, An Coiste Logainmneacha (the Placenames Committee) intends to advise the Minister of State for the Irish Language, the Gaeltacht and the Islands, Joe McHugh, T.D., to declare by order the Irish language version of the placenames of County Laois.
Before giving its advice, the Committee wishes to receive recommendations from the public regarding the draft order, including the Irish versions. The Committee is publishing a draft of the proposed order so that the public has an opportunity to study it.
The draft order can be accessed on the website of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht at https://www.chg.gov.ie/gaeltacht/the-irish-language/the-placenames-branch/consultation/ or on the website of the Placenames Database of Ireland at https://www.logainm.ie/en/ord/.
The Irish versions in the draft order are based on the work of the Placenames Branch in the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. The recommendations will be considered in advance of advice being provided to the Minister of State with regard to the Placenames Order.
Recommendations should be sent in submission form to the Placenames Branch, Joyce House, 8–11 Lombard Street East, Dublin 2 or to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrive no later than 30th June 2018.
