Do you have a question concerning the law? Maybe you want to know if your bank can raise the interest on your mortgage? Can your employer let you go without paying you redundancy? What rights do landlords and tenants have? Do you have the right to speak in Irish to the judge? How do you make out a will?
The Irish-language free legal advice service - An tSeirbhís Saor-Chomhairle Dlí Náisiúnta - is organised nationwide by Conradh na Gaeilge and its legal branch in The Four Courts, Craobh na gCeithre Cúirteanna, in association with Free Legal Advice Centres (FLAC), an independent human rights organisation that is committed to increasing access to justice for all. To this end, professional lawyers work with FLAC in different centres across the country to provide some basic, free legal services to members of the public that would not be able to avail of legal advice any other way.
An tSeirbhís Saor-Chomhairle Dlí Náisiúnta is committed to giving everyone access to justice, through Irish and at no charge, in Gaeltacht areas and beyond. Whether you’re struggling with family issues, credit and debit problems, employment rights, or if you’re simply looking for information on a legal issue, An tSeirbhís Saor-Chomhairle Dlí provides free legal advice through Irish on a monthly basis in the following centres across the country:
