Question

107. Deputy Clare Daly asked the Minister for Justice and Equality further to Parliamentary Question No. 396 of 15 January 2019, if information relating to the Garda unit that attended at Oberstown Children Detention Campus on each occasion that gardaí were called between 2016 and 2018 and to date in 2019 will be provided. [7446/19]

Answer

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): I am advised that the type of breakdown sought by the Deputy is not readily available and could take a substantial period of time for An Garda Síochána to assemble. However, I am advised by the Garda authorities that calls to Oberstown Detention Centre are typically responded to by Gardaí attached to Balbriggan, Lusk and Skerries Garda Stations and, where necessary, this response is augmented by other units such as Public Order Units and the Crime Task Force.
Notwithstanding the above, if the Deputy is referring to a specific incident during the period in question, and she would like to bring this incident to my attention, I would be happy to make further enquiries with the Garda authorities.
