Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Provision of Cottages (County Kerry).

asked the Minister for Local Government if he will state the present position with regard to the proposals to erect 25 cottages in Cahirciveen and 12 cottages in Waterville, County Kerry.

No proposals for a scheme for 25 houses at Cahirciveen have been received in my Department. I understand, however, that the Kerry County Council are at present seeking a suitable site for the houses.

The acceptance by the council of a tender for the erection of 12 houses at Waterville was approved last February. The council have not, as yet, completed the usual preliminaries to the commencement of the work.
