I am advised by the Commissioners of Public Works that tearooms are being provided at Kilmacurragh National Botanic Gardens, Co Wicklow. Planning permission for 'change of use' has been received from Wicklow County Council. A Contractor was appointed earlier this year following a competitive tender process for construction of the facility. However certain contractual issues have arisen with the Contractor which have interrupted completion of the work.
