The figures were released under a Freedom of Information request by which showed the force recouped more than €7.6 million from concert promoters, sporting bodies, and the National Ploughing Championships over the past year.

The largest bill was the €380,000 paid by Aiken Promotions for the five dates by country star Garth Brooks at Croke Park last September.

Of the €7.6 million paid by companies for Garda assistance over the past year, around one-sixth of it – or €1.23 million – was paid by the promoters MCD.
