I am informed by the Irish Prison Service that individual prisons do not have 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:
