Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I am informed by An Garda Síochána that since January 2015, three firearms licences have been revoked in the Garda Síochána District of Roscommon. These revocations were not the subject of appeals to the District Court. No firearms licences have been revoked in the Garda Síochána District of Longford.
