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
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 is a searchable version of the just published second interim report of IBRC/Siteserv Commission of Investigation. It’s also a Friday night newsdump.

Here is the Fennelly Report in a searchable PDF and weighing in at just 13Mb. (Your public servants decided it was wise to place a 90MB scanned image PDF of the report on two websites, making the report largely unavailable and unsearchable)
Previously I have published the Ansbacher Report spread over a dozen documents. With the day that’s in it here is the full near 10,000 page report as one downloadable document, which has also been OCRd.
To make it easier this is an OCRd searchable version of the Guerin Report.
Thanks to the Oireachtas library becoming available recently, we now have full digital access to the fascinating Glackin (Interim) Report. While we have previously published the final Glackin report, in some ways the interim report is more interesting. This is mainly down to the detailed appendices.
The report involves such luminaries as now billionaire Dermot Desmond, now billionaire Joe Lewis, now billionaire JP McManus, Larry Goodman, Ansbacher Bankers Ltd, John Magnier, Lochlann Quinn, Michael Smurfit and Noel Smyth, among others.
