Written answers (Question to Culture)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 710 and 714 together.

Officials in my Department are engaged on an ongoing basis with Cork City Council regarding the development of the centre to which the Deputy refers and continue to discuss all aspects around the public funding elements of the project with Cork City Council Officials. My most recent meeting on the project, at which Cork City Council was represented, was on the 26th March last, and officials have met on a number of occasions since then.
