We tackle the challenges involved in converting raw government data into high-quality Linked Government Data (LGD). Our approach is centred around the idea of self-service LGD which shifts the burden of Linked Data conversion towards the data consumer. The self-service LGD is supported by a publishing pipeline that also enables sharing the results with sufficient provenance information. We describe how the publishing pipeline was applied to a local government catalogue in Ireland resulting in a significant amount of Linked Data published.
