Tribunal decision lifts shroud of secrecy on Council decision-making
The PILS Project’s reaction to Tribunal ruling on bilingual signage legal advice
Conradh na Gaeilge’s instincts to push for full transparency have been vindicated by Thursday’s Tribunal decision (01 February 2024).
Every Belfast resident deserves to know how their council makes decisions that impact on their daily lives. Deliberations around Olympia’s bilingual signs should never have been shrouded in secrecy.
PILS are very proud to have supported Conradh na Gaeilge and CAJ’s legal team in this appeal.
Comhghairdeas go leir! Congratulations to all!
We urge Belfast City Council to promptly share the legal advice that they originally relied upon.
We particularly want to thank Iryna Kennedy BL, from PILS’ Pro Bono Register, who acted in this matter on a pro bono basis.

"Campaigners have won a landmark challenge to the non-disclosure of legal advice which stalled controversial plans to erect Irish language signs at a south Belfast leisure centre." https://t.co/0ysSVPp99s
