The mysterious Irish codebreakers

A British report investigating the security of US diplomatic codes mentions that the Irish had a codebreaking department and were ‘thoroughly well equipped in the art of code breaking’.

According to another report ‘their head cryptographer is extremely able’.

Who could they be referring to? It seems that the head of the Irish codebreaking department was a mr Richard Hayes.
