New Titles for Government Departments

In recent weeks, the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government was renamed the Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government. A statement from the Department said the change of title, and focus, reflects the priority placed by the Government on addressing housing issues, as evidenced in the recent publication of the Action Plan for Housing & Homelessness. The Department’s website is now at and the new Twitter handle is @HousingPress


The Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht has also recently expanded to be now known as the Department of Arts, Heritage, Regional, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs. The Department’s website is now at and the Twitter handle remains @DeptAHG
