Dublin City Council operates a formal commemorative plaques scheme to:
Facilitate the formal commemoration of people, organisations, and events that have made a unique and significant contribution to the life or history of Dublin through outstanding achievement, distinctive service or significant community contribution.
There are some conditions, the main ones being that for a person to be commemorated they must be twenty years deceased or have reached the centenary of their birth; an event must have occurred at least twenty years ago, and the owner of the building the plaque is to go on must give formal permission.
If you think someone, or an event, or a location, deserves a plaque, you can submit an application using the official form.
All valid applications are considered and decided upon by the Council’s Commemorations & Naming Committee.
