Written Answers. - Share a Dream Foundation.

Enda Kenny


250 Mr. E. Kenny asked the Minister for Education if she will allocate funding to the Share a Dream Foundation which has brought joy and happiness to and has assisted in many ways over 700 children in Ireland; if her attention has been drawn to the valuable work of this charity; if her attention has further been drawn to the great numbers of deprived children whose parents or guardians applied to this foundation in the hope of some assistance; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

My Department does not have any funds at its disposal to provide grant aid for the purposes outlined by the Deputy. I am in consultation with my colleagues in other Government Departments and I will communicate with the Deputy on the matter at the earliest possible date.
