Reg. 12

An applicant, either through their solicitor or directly in writing (to the Legal Aid Board, Quay Street, Cahirciveen, Co. Kerry), may also appeal to an appeal committee, which consists of members of the Board.

They will consider the appeal and take a decision, which will usually either be:

  • to confirm the decision maker,
  • or they may overturn the decision

However the Committee are not limited to these choices, and may “otherwise alter” any decision made by a decision maker.

Usually, an appeal does not involve the submission of any further information to the Committee, though it is open to the Committee to ask for such further information.
