Welcome to  the website of the Press Council of Ireland and  Office of the Press Ombudsman. Established in 2008, we consider complaints about newspapers (print and online), magazines and online-only news publications - view our full list of member publications.

We are independent of government and the press.

There is no charge for making complaints.

The standards our members commit to can be found in the Code of Practice of the Press Council.

We cannot consider complaints about publications that are not members of the Press Council of Ireland, or complaints about broadcasting or advertising.

We also promote press freedom and the right to freedom of expression.
