For the record:
For the record, here is the Clarion audit on QQI, as reported recently by the Sunday Times:
A quango that regulates further and higher education qualifications has an organisational structure that is “not fit for purpose”, abnormal levels of conflict and distrust among staff, and a management team that is lacking in expertise, an audit has found.
The highly critical assessment of Quality and Qualifications Ireland (QQI) was made by Clarion, a consultancy firm commissioned by the Department of Education to review the regulator.
Thanks to the Sunday Times for sharing the document.http://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3516009-Clarion-Organisational-Review-of-QQI-Final.html
This is the judgment in Denis O’Brien -v- Red Flag Consulting Limited, dated December 13th 2016 by Judge Colm MacEochaidh.
This is the submission made by Denis O’Brien to the High Court in his case against the Clerk of Dáil Eireann, the members of the CPP, Ireland and the Attorney General.
Given recent stories about Console, we publish below the annual accounts for Console for 2013 and the 2012 accounts (along side the re-submitted 2012 accounts)
2012 accounts (and re-submitted accounts):
In January 2013, Deputy Clare Daly, TD for the Dublin North constituency, made a complaint to GSOC, arising from her arrest on 29 January. Significant aspects of her complaint concerned the alleged unlawful disclosure of information to the media, both about the fact of her arrest and about whom she requested to be called at the time.
…while it is not possible to state that this information was released by a particular Garda or any other identifiable person, there does appear to be sufficient evidence to state, on the balance of probabilities, that some of the detail relating to Deputy Daly’s arrest emanated from within the Garda Síochána organisation and were made available to the media in an unauthorised manner.
The Ombudsman Commission is of the view that Deputy Daly was entitled to the presumption of innocence and that she had a right to privacy. These rights appear to have been infringed by the release of such information.
Gene Kerrigan opinion piece.
Here is the report in full:
Here it is – The Commission of Investigation Certain Matters Relative to the Cavan Monaghan Division of the Garda Síochána – Final Report. Coincidentally, the Minister for Justice is apparently out of the country. The report was somewhat readable, but we’ve applied an additional OCR process just in case.
This was made available as a scanned/photo PDF, but as usual we subjected it to an OCR process to make it more searchable.
This is a searchable version of the just published second interim report of IBRC/Siteserv Commission of Investigation. It’s also a Friday night newsdump.
