I am informed by the Irish Prison Service that individual prisons do not have a separate budget allocations. Instead each budget area is managed centrally by the appropriate Directorate in Irish Prison Service Headquarters. The overall budget allocated to the Irish Prison Service 2013 - 2018 and the overall expenditure in Limerick prison for the period 2013 – Apr 2018 are included in the following table:
