Written Answers. - Harbours and Piers.

Michael Ring


127 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for the Marine and Natural Resources if funding has been allocated to the pier at Rinroe, Kilgalligan, Carrowtigue, Ballina, County Mayo; and when the light at the pier will be repaired. [4947/00]

Rinroe Pier is owned by Mayo County Council and its maintenance and development is primarily the responsibility of the local authority. As the pier is located in a Gaeltacht area, the question of funding for any proposed development works would be a matter in the first instance for the Minister for Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands.
