This information is not held centrally, but the information that is available covers 1973 and 1999 eight people in total were extradited to the UK from Ireland for terrorism offences and the UK made 110 extradition requests to Ireland in relation to terrorist offences. No information is available on how many requests were made for alleged criminal offences not related to acts of terrorism.
