Written answers (Question to Culture)

Details of my Ministerial Diary are published on my Department's website on a quarterly basis. For the convenience of the Deputy, the details requested in relation to formal meetings with the CEO and or chairperson or equivalent of those State agencies under the remit of my Department to date in 2019 are as follows.

March: Maura McGrath, Chair of the National Concert Hall

April: Rose McHugh (Chair) and Mary McCarthy (Director) of the Crawford Gallery

For the sake of completeness, I would also advise the Deputy that my colleague the Minister of State (with special responsibility for the Gaeltacht), Sean Kyne, T.D, met with the Chair and CEO of Foras na Gaeilge in March of this year.

In addition to these meetings the Deputy will be aware that my Department officials are in regular co contact with the management of these agencies on an ongoing basis.
