I propose to take Questions Nos. 515 and 516 together.
So far, my Department has not received any formal proposals from Longford County Council with regard to the proposed regeneration project at Granard, Co. Longford. I understand, however, that the Council is currently preparing a masterplan for the regeneration of certain areas in Granard including the Colmkille Terrace and Redmond Terrace areas.
Under Section 78 of the Local Government Act 2001, the provision of premises and facilities in the public library service is a matter for each local authority in its capacity as a library authority. I refer to the reply to Question No. 485 on today’s order paper in respect of public library developments in Longford.
