The table below shows the amounts paid to counsel by the Chief State Solicitor’s Office in actions where the Minister for Education is a named party for the years requested.

I am advised that a full breakdown of counsel paid by name cannot be given for GDPR reasons.

It should be noted that fees paid in a given year may relate to work carried out in earlier years.

Year Total
2019 €268,703
2020 €275,186
2021 €1,153,036
2022 to date €357,742
