Galway City Council

How do we know this information?

In the 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland, not every council was forthcoming with FOI requests. However, we discovered the European Directive on Environment mandates European public bodies to provide all environmental related information to be published to a fulsome extent, at no extra cost. There was also a lack of knowledge amongst senior council officers in regards to the financial information being sought.
