Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

My Department has not engaged the company in question for any projects in the years concerned. However, in 2018 my Department paid €14,205 to the company in question for expenses incurred by a witness following receipt of a direction under section 24 of the Commissions of Investigation Act 2004 by Judge Brian Cregan, Sole Member of the Commission of Investigation established concerning the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation. This payment was in respect of a service provided by the company to a witness in connection with the Commission’s investigation.
