Written answers (Question to Justice)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 474 to 476, inclusive, together.

Further to the information provided to the Deputy's Parliamentary Questions No. 218 and No. 219 on 16 April, I am informed by the Garda authorities that a more detailed breakdown by rail, dart or LUAS station is not available.

However, I am advised by the Garda authorities that the attached table contains a further breakdown regarding the number of bicycles stolen from Irish Rail stations in the Dublin Region, and outside the Dublin Region, by year.

I hope this information is of assistance.
