Progress on plans to review the upper age limit of 35 for new garda recruits has been criticised as "unacceptably slow".

Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan has confirmed he expects the age for entry to be considered as part of a wider overhaul of recruitment aimed at ensuring greater diversity in the gardai.

But he did not offer a time-line for this to be done when asked about the issue by Social Democrats TD Catherine Murphy.
