Decided by the Press Council on appeal

Complainants and publications are entitled to appeal to the Press Council of Ireland if they are dissatisfied with a formal decision of the Press Ombudsman in relation to complaints in which they are involved that have been the subject of a formal decision following conciliation and investigation.

A formal decision of the Press Ombudsman can be appealed to the Press Council of Ireland on one or more of the following grounds: that there has been an error in procedure; that significant new information is available that could not have been or was not made available to the Press Ombudsman before he made his decision; that there has been an error in the Press Ombudsman’s application of the Principles of the Code of Practice. Mere disagreement with the decision of the Press Ombudsman is not grounds for appeal.
