Dáil Eireann Debate
157. Mr. Gregory asked the Taoiseach further to Parliamentary Question No. 222 of 24 October 2006, if his Department will request all State buildings including the Four Courts to so arrange the flags. [36098/06]
The Taoiseach: In accordance with the guidelines in An Bhratach Náisiúnta, it is the normal practice to fly the National Flag daily at all military posts and from a limited number of important State Buildings equipped with a permanent flagpole. State Buildings equipped with more than one flagpole, including Government Buildings, the Four Courts, the General Post Office and the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin also fly the European Union Flag at the same time.
All Government Departments are notified by my Department on an annual basis of specific occasions during the year on which the National Flag should be flown from buildings under their control, equipped with a permanent flagpole, e.g. Easter Sunday/Easter Monday and The National Day of Commemoration.
