Written answers (Question to Minister for Finance)

The contract for Garda uniforms was awarded to James Boylan Safety Limited, Milltown, County Monaghan following an EU competitive process.

Over the period of the contract (three years), the estimated value is €12.7 million. The constituent 60 items of the uniform contract are manufactured in the countries outlined below.

In addition, I can confirm that no Irish manufactured garments were offered by any of the other tenderers in the Garda Uniform competition.
