Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): As the Deputy will be aware a number of serious incidents occurred during the period in question and I wish to recognise the dedication of An Garda Síochána and other emergency services personnel in their response to these incidents and to express my sympathies to the families of those affected.
I am advised by the Garda authorities that the number of calls received at the Garda Communications Centre from 08:00 on 31 October 2015 to 08:00 on 1 November 2015 for the Dublin Metropolitan Region (DMR) was 1,522.
