Vol. 514 No. 3

Written Answers. - Commissioners of Dúchas.

Paul Connaughton


292 Mr. Connaughton asked the Minister for Arts, Heritage Gaeltacht and the Islands the commissioners of Dúchas; their background; their experience; and when they were appointed. [4244/00]

Dúchas is the heritage division of my Department and as such has no commissioners. When the heritage division of Office of Public Works transferred to my Department so did the relevant commissioner of public works who was and is of assistant secretary rank.

This individual has retained the title of commissioner of public works and retains some functions in that office.
