Section 6(4) of the Act requires each public body to publish a list of designated public officials of the body. The purpose of the list is:

  • to allow members of the public to identify those persons who are designated public officials;
  • to be used as a resource for lobbyists filing a return to the Register who may need to source a designated public official’s details.

Further information is available at www.lobbying.ie.

Members of the Science Foundation Ireland Board who are Designated Public Officals are:

Ms Mary Doyle, Deputy Secretary, Department of Education
