The aggregated data that are publicly available at the program expenditure level but not available at the actual expenditure level, i.e. transactional level.
There was some dispute here, and it was dediced to assume that these do exist even though a link is not provided, as to get to the programme level actual expenditures are required. http://databank.per.gov.ie/Expenditure.aspx
I have sent this office an email to see if the licence may have changed and if by chance they have a plan to have their data shared in .xls
