New details have emerged which look set to put more pressure on the Garda Commissioner – over financial irregularities at the training college in Templemore.

The Irish Mail on Sunday has seen a dossier backing up Garda HR Chief John Barrett’s evidence that Noirin O’Sullivan was aware of the issues a month earlier than she testified to the Public Accounts Committee.

Labour’s Alan Kelly says he expects more revelations to come out this week about the use of taxpayer funds at the facility.


It comes as investigations continue into the force itself and the treatment of whistleblowers within it.

Deputy Kelly says we don’t need another commission of investigation, but international expertise to address the problems within An Garda Siochana would help.
