Written answers (Question to Communications)

Further to my response to Parliamentary Question No. 488 of 27 May 2014, I can confirm that the area of Newtown referred to in the published county-by-county list of towns and villages which have been identified for a fibre build-out is in Nenagh, County Tipperary. As indicated previously, this is an indicative list and is subject to the completion of the comprehensive mapping exercise currently being completed by my Department. Further locations may be identified as this process continues. Similarly, it may be determined that some locations on the list will be addressed by the commercial sector and will therefore not require State intervention.
