The following table sets out the appointments made by me, as Minister, in 2014 to boards of State bodies coming within the aegis of my Department. It may also be noted that appointments to the boards of Foras na Gaeilge and the Ulster-Scots Agency, being agencies of the North South Implementation Body, An Foras Teanga, are made by the North South Ministerial Council (NSMC), arising from nominations on a 50:50 basis from each jurisdiction. One such appointment - Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire - was made to the board of Foras na Gaeilge in 2014.
