Details (at subhead level) of the annual funding allocations provided by my Department to Fáilte Ireland are available in the annual Revised Estimates Volume published by the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. The subheads of relevance to Fáilte Ireland are E3, E6 and E5 (shared with Tourism Ireland) and further detail is available in the Agency Statement for Fáilte Ireland in the Revised Estimates Volumes. I have referred the Deputy's question to Fáilte Ireland for further detail in regard to funding provided by Fáilte Ireland to local authorities or other agencies. Please contact my private office if you do not hear within ten working days.

My Department does not provide specific tourism funding to local authorities or other agencies other than funding for the development of Greenways, allocations for which are set in the annual Revised Estimates Volume.
