Rapporteur of Seanad Public Consultation on National Anthem
The report is available in full here: Rapporteur of Seanad Public Consultation on National Anthem.pdf
In 2017 and 2018 the Seanad Public Consultation Committee convened a public consultation on the National Anthem. The report produced following the consultation found very favourable public support for the anthem and that protocols in relation to its use should be introduced.
As report rapporteur Senator Daly was happy to see the public engagement and the desire to protect the Anthem as much as possible from any use in commercial advertising. The National Anthem belongs to all Irish people, it is a key symbol of our identity yet it lacks protection.
