    What kind of information are you looking for, bearing in mind GDPR.

    Is it with the persons permission?

    Do a data request on the gardai. You should get most relevant data held, although you wont get anything sensitive that is currently be looked at, like if you are under investigation.

    Revenue will know your work history, but not sure they can access your personal tax history unless you give permission.

    Background check most likely your employment history over the last 5 years and the gardai if working with children or vulnerable people

    You don't need the exact date, just say:

    2008-2010 Job 1

    2010-2014 Job 2

    2014-2022 Job 3
