Written answers (Question to Culture)

Waterways Ireland is operationally independent in regard to its management of the inland waterways under its remit therefore I do not have any function in this regard.

I am informed however that the area to which the Deputy refers has been inspected by Waterways Ireland Operations staff and all areas where mowed grass was evident on the trackway have been cleared. No evidence of structural damage to existing tar surfaces was observed.
