[13354/16]

Answer

Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): I am informed by the Garda Commissioner that she travelled to Washington on State business in March of this year. These are matters within the operational discretion of the Commissioner and I would not consider it appropriate to seek precise details of her itinerary.
