Department of Justice and Equality
107. To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality if members of the uniformed Prison Service who took part in recent centenary commemorations did not receive the appropriate commemorative medals that were awarded to others; if there was a particular reason for this; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [46132/22]
I understand that the Deputy is referring to the recent events to commemorate the centenary of the founding of An Garda Síochána. While the Irish Prisons Service was represented at the recent centenary celebrations, the Irish Prisons Service had no role in the event or any associated medal giving ceremony.
