The Beginner's Guide to Freedom of Information

This guide to Freedom of Information in Ireland is provided free to anybody looking to get started in making requests.

It is regularly updated with the latest FOI decisions, changes in information access law, and new resources for making requests easy.

If you do find it useful, please make a contribution ... small or large!

All money raised will be used so that I can continue to update this guide, and to make FOI requests and publish information in the public interest.
