Written answers (Question to Minister for Foreign)

In the timeframe available it is not possible to provide information earlier than 2006. Since that time, my Department has engaged the services of external public relations companies for a limited number of specific projects, including assistance with events relating to the Irish Aid programme and promoting awareness of the EU. The total amount paid to these companies was €880,544.
