Written answers (Question to Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources)

The provision of public lighting for Ballycastle, County Mayo, is solely a matter for Mayo County Council. There is no Irish Coastguard coastal unit or RNLI station at Ballycastle and sub-aqua clubs are not among the resources declared to the Irish Coastguard as available for marine emergency on a 24 hour, 365 day a year basis.
