Due to ongoing COVID restrictions it is not possible to carry out a full review of files to provide a comprehensive reply to this question. However, from the information readily available it is evident that there were discussions between the Office of Public Works and An Garda Síochána early in 2013 in relation to planning for the expiry of the leases in Harcourt Square. Subsequent discussions would have focused on the identification and evaluation of alternative locations which ultimately led to the design and construction of a new facility for An Garda Síochána.
