RTÉ reports:

Minister for Social Protection Regina Doherty has said up to 50 public bodies have access to the data identity set stored on Public Services Cards, according to legislation passed in 2013.


She said the chips on the cards contain “the standard identity set that we’ve always used in the department, and that’s being rolled out between all departments, which is your date of birth, place of birth, gender, nationality, and if you have a former surname”.

She said “all of that information is encrypted and no one can read that information from the card”.
