The Passport Office provides information requested from public authorities and An Garda Síochána only when it is satisfied it can do so in accordance with the GDPR and relevant sections of the Data Protection Act 2018. This request for information could include the data on a passport application form or on a printed passport document.

The data shared is the specific data requested by the public authority and An Garda Síochána. Given that the nature of the response is determined by the content of each request, it is not possible to define what information would be shared.
