438. Deputy Jennifer Murnane O'Connor asked the Minister for Justice the number of inspections Gardaí within the Carlow-Kilkenny division carried out on pubs, clubs and so on, to ensure full compliance with liquor licensing regulation in 2023 and to date in 2024; the percentage of premises that were found in breach of legislation in each of the years in question, in tabular form; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [17617/24]

Helen McEntee, Minister for Justice: As the Deputy will be aware, in accordance with the Garda Síochána Act 2005 (as amended), the Garda Commissioner is responsible for the general management and administration of An Garda Síochána, including liquor licensing inspections. As Minister, I have no role in these matters.

To be of assistance to the Deputy, I have made enquiries with Garda management. The table below, provided to me by the Garda authorities, shows the number of inspections carried out in the Kilkenny/Carlow Division and breaches recorded.
