Michael Ring

Question:

144 Mr. Ring asked the Minister for the Marine and Natural Resources when the pilot light at Murrisk Pier, Murrisk, Westport, County Mayo will be completed; and when this light will be erected. [7524/01]

Murrisk Pier is owned by Mayo County Council and its maintenance and development is the responsibility of the local authority in the first instance. However, I understand that the county council is making the necessary arrangements for the erection of a pilot light at the pier.
