Details of income streams paid directly to my Department are recorded as Appropriations-in-Aid in the annual Appropriation Accounts which are published by the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General and made available via their website www.audit.gov.ie .

Payments to my Department relate primarily to pension related deductions on local authority remuneration, rather than to payments by individuals as referred to in the Question.
