Sinéad Gibney to resign from IHREC role

The Chief Commissioner of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC), Sinéad Gibney, is to resign her position, with effect from 15 March.

A statement from the organisation said that she would be seeking a nomination to run as a candidate for election in June.

IHREC did not give any further details and said that neither it, nor the chief commissioner, would be making any further comment.


The commission thanked Gibney for the contribution she had made in her time as chief commissioner, and as the inaugural director of the organisation, and wished her well in her future endeavours.

Gibney described working for IHREC as “a privilege”.

“I have full confidence that IHREC will continue to thrive, and to serve the people of Ireland in the fulfilment of its mandate. I’m excited to now embark on a new chapter in my own career,” she concluded.
