Public Affairs Ireland Editor, Rachael Walsh, presents a copy of the PAI Directory to the Taoiseach in Government Buildings  


The Taoiseach was recently presented with a copy of our Directory of Government and State Agencies, edited by Mayo native Rachael Walsh. The presentation took place in Government Buildings.

The PAI Directory is a single source of reference to Government Departments, parliamentary structures and the political system in Ireland. It provides detailed up-to-date information and contact details for all Government departments, members of government and junior ministers, Oireachtas members, opposition spokespersons, civil service departments and over 200 state agencies.

The Editor of the Directory, Rachael Walsh, studied Law and Politics in University College Dublin, graduating in 2012. Ms Walsh started in the position of Editor with PAI in September 2013.

PAI was established in 2002 and consists of three main divisions, Education and Training, Publications and Conferences. As well as the indispensable Directory of Government and State Services in Ireland, PAI publishes a monthly journal, a weekly newsletter and a Freedom of Information manual. These publications provide an invaluable analytical service for anyone interested in what is occurring in the public policy arena in Ireland.
