“On January 13th 2022, I asked the Secretary General of the Department of Foreign Affairs for a report into the circumstances leading up to the publication of a photograph from the offices of Iveagh House on June 17th 2020. There was a commitment to complete the review by the end of January and this commitment has been met. I today received his report and I am publishing it in full.
