Written answers (Question to Culture)

The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) of my Department is continuing its discussions with the various interests with a mast presence in the area in question. The aim of these discussions is to address the issue of payment and enhancing the overall care and management of the site. As outlined in the previous response, these discussions are significantly advanced and nearly concluded. As the discussions have not yet reached their formal conclusion ,it would be inappropriate to provide further details publicly at this time. The NPWS intend to conclude the matter shortly and I will be in touch with the Deputy at that point.

In the meantime, I want to thank the Deputy for his continuing interest in the matter.
