Accessibility work for the Houses of the Oireachtas

InterAccess are very happy to announce that we are working with the Houses of the Oireachtas on improving the accessibility of their website.

The Oireachtas sometimes referred to as Oireachtas Éireann, is the legislature of Ireland. The Oireachtas consists of:

  • The President of Ireland
  • The two houses of the Oireachtas (Irish: Tithe an Oireachtais)
  • Dáil Éireann (lower house)
  • Seanad Éireann (upper house)

The houses of the Oireachtas sit in Leinster House in Dublin, an eighteenth-century ducal palace. The directly elected Dáil is by far the more powerful branch of the Oireachtas.

The Houses of the Oireachtas are committed to ensuring that their website is inclusive and accessible to the widest possible audience and have engaged with InterAccess to help them achieve this goal.
