Written answers (Question to Taoiseach)

I recently launched the North East Inner City 2017 Progress Report when I visited the area with Minister Donohoe on Monday, 26 February.

The Report sets out the work of the Programme Implementation Board since it was established last June and outlines the progress made under the four priority areas of crime and drugs; education, training and employment opportunities; services for families and young people; and physical improvements.

The Report also sets out details of the spending on the North East Inner City initiative to date. A copy of the Report together with further information on the work can be found at www.neic.ie.

During my recent visit to the area I witnessed first hand the commitment and excellent work by a wide range of community projects working hard to develop opportunities for the people of the North East Inner City.
