The 12th January 2023 marked the 100th anniversary of the formal establishment of the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General. The anniversary provides us with the opportunity to reflect on the establishment and development of the Office which, in supporting the Comptroller and Auditor General, plays a key role in the process of democratic accountability and for the reporting and use of public funds in Ireland.
We have a programme of activities to commemorate this significant event in 2023.
In January, we kicked-off the centenary commemoration at the Annual Conference. The programme included several centenary related presentations and speakers, including
Dr Marie Léoutre, Historian, Royal Irish Academy
Professor Muiris MacCarthaigh, Queen’s University Belfast
Professor Colin Scott, College of Social Sciences and Law, University College Dublin
