Written answers (Question to Minister for Defence)

Following the closure of Kickham Barracks Clonmel a company was contracted to provide security on a temporary basis at the barracks. These arrangements were put in place pending the installation of additional security measures in the barracks. These security measures have recently been completed and a review of security needs is now underway. If it is decided that a more permanent security arrangement is required a tender competition for the provision of such services will be held.
