Written answers (Question to Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism)

The OPW commissioned an outline report on the feasibility of reconfiguring the Earlsfort site to meet the long term needs of the National Concert Hall. This study concludes that all of the needs of the National Concert Hall for the long-term could be met if the entire Earlsfort Terrace site were to become available. This report is being examined in consultation with all of the parties involved, following which I intend to bring proposals to Government in the near future for long-term strategic development of the National Concert Hall.
