Functions of Tailte Éireann
Tailte Éireann has assumed the functions of the PRA, VO, and OSi and as such, it is now the primary national source of property information and geospatial data.
The agency, which is headed by a Chief Executive and Board, is responsible for providing the authoritative property registration system, national mapping and surveying infrastructure and property valuation service for the State.
By streamlining the services of the PRA, VO and OSi into one entity, the organisation aims to:
- Enhance the benefits of land information for Ireland’s continued economic and social development;
- Ensure easy access to and use of location information, including property and title information, property valuation data, maps, and aerial imagery, for citizens, businesses and policymakers;
- Provide streamlined access to enhanced land and geospatial services which will result in more coordinated strategic and business planning, evidence-based decision-making, and innovative service delivery in line with government policy; and
- Lead the development and maintenance of national spatial information infrastructures and support better land management.
The establishment of a centralised agency is a welcomed development that promises to lead to enhanced efficiencies in providing land and geospatial services to the public and the Government.
At the formal launch of Tailte Éireann at its new headquarters in the Distillers’ Building in Smithfield Square, Dublin, Kieran O'Donnell (Minister of State with responsibility for local government and planning) commented that its functions are "essential for underpinning the State's economy in many areas – including property, planning, agriculture, local government, the environment and construction."
