How to invoke section 4 of the Data Protection Acts in Ireland
One wierd trick to get your personal data (in any format) from any random organisation, for only EUR6.35 and up to 40 days wait! Good to know.
Hospitals and doctors’ offices in Ireland will give a person their medical records if they ask for them. Mostly. Eventually. When they get to it. And, sometimes, if you pay them over €100 (for a large file).

But, like so much else in the legal world, there is a set of magic words you can incant to place a 40 day deadline on the delivery of your papers and limit the cost to €6.35 -- you invoke the Data Protection Acts data access request procedure.
