Written answers (Question to Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs)

Waterways Ireland has responsibility for the management, maintenance, development and restoration of the inland navigational waterways primarily for recreational purposes. Waterways Ireland carries out a capital development programme to provide moorings and harbours for public use and other services along the navigation. However, it is not a grant-giving agency and does not provide financial assistance for groups or individuals to provide similar facilities.
