About 2012 Data
Figures include incitement to hatred offences.
The European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) recommended that Ireland improve and supplement the existing arrangements for collecting data on racist incidents, and assess the application of criminal law provisions against racism in order to identify any gaps that need closing, including making racist motivation an aggravating circumstance.
ODIHR observes that Ireland has not reported on the numbers of prosecuted cases or information on sentenced hate crime cases to ODIHR.
