The planning report generally outlines the process through which a decision was made - i.e. problems cited and the recommendation through which a decision is derived in the event of such issues. Some reports online may only state conditions - in this case, it is worth a trip to the planning office where the full records of events should be available within the planning report.
Re: a further application, if reasoning behind the initial conditions aren't addressed, reapplying will generally ensure the same outcome conditions as the previous application - and as such, it's a waste of your own money. I would recommend that you assess the conditions and if you're not satisfied with them, approach the remedies to the application with respect to the conditions - if re-application outcomes still do not suit your motives, there is always the option of appealing the conditions to An Bord Pleanala, provided you have a good case to argue the conditions.
