Question:

167 Mr. Gilmore asked the Minister for the Marine and Natural Resources the position in regard to the erection of a protective sea wall at the bridge on the main Kincasslagh-Burtonport road at Keadue, County Donegal; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [8143/01]

Keadue, Kincasslagh was listed among proposals for coast protection works submitted to my Department for funding by Donegal County Council. The question of allocating funding for protection works at this location will be addressed in the context of overall coastal protection programmes and the funding available for such works.
