asked the Minister for Education whether she intends to finance the activities centre being operated by County Kerry VEC at Cappanalea, Glencar near Killorglin in County Kerry; and if she will make a statement on the matter in view of the fact that grants for operational costs are required from her Department to make this centre viable.

I am at present having the whole question of outdoor pursuits centres, including the Cappanalea centre, fully examined in my Department. When this examination has been completed and evaluated, I will be in a position to comment further in the matter.
