Written answers (Question to Arts)

The following projects named in my reply to the Parliamentary Questions referred to above were funded from the A.6. Subhead of my Department's vote in 2012:

The Hunt Museum, Archbishop Marsh's Library, National Print Museum, James Joyce Centre, National Maritime Museum, Science Gallery, Cork Butter Museum, Irish Museum's Association, Regional Museums Programme, Mobility of Collections, Culture Night 2012, Co-operation with Northern Ireland and Irish Manuscripts Commission.

However, as I stated in my reply of 7 March 2013 the audit of 2012 expenditure by my Department has yet to be completed by the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General. As such I cannot advise at this point on the proportion of the total expenditure under subhead A.6 that these amount to for 2012.
