The Taoiseach's department spent more than €12,000 on photography in the first half of the year, it has been revealed.

In total, Enda Kenny's department has spent more than €120,000 on camera work between his taking office in March of 2011 and July 2016.

More than €4,500 was spent on pictures at the State reception to mark Easter Sunday, while a further €3,000 was spent on photography for the parade marking the Easter Rising and wreath laying ceremonies at Kilmainham Gaol.

The photography done at the first meeting of the new cabinet ministers totaled €780.

The Department of the Taoiseach said that costs have been significantly reduced - down from the €83,000 spent in 2008 alone.
