Written answers (Question to Public)

The conveyancing of the property at Derrynane from the Commissioners of Public Works to Kerry County Council has been a complex legal process. The key issue is establishing title documentation. I understand that the matter has progressed significantly in conjunction with the Chief State Solicitor's Office (CSSO) and I am informed that draft contract documents have now been prepared by the CSSO. As soon as the Office of Public Works has received these contracts they will receive immediate attention in order to conclude matters as quickly as possible.
