The Comptroller and Auditor General has carried out an examination of the cost of the child abuse inquiry and redress. The work of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse and of the Redress Board is largely complete. Costs to the end of 2015 of the child abuse inquiry and redress are an estimated €1.5 billion. Both the cost to the State and the time required to bring the process to a conclusion have hugely exceeded original estimates.
