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

In January 2004, the Government decided to proceed with the development of a sports campus at Abbotstown. I requested Campus Stadium Ireland Development Limited to meet with the various sporting bodies and draw up a developmental plan for a campus of sports facilities at Abbotstown. This work is now nearing completion and I expect to receive the proposals of the board of CSID for phased development of the component elements of the campus in the very near future and to be in a position to bring them to Government for decision before the end of the year, which will be the basis for a Government decision on the future of the sports campus project.
