Written answers (Question to Education)

The proposed development of Shielbaggan Outdoor Centre on Forth Mountain, County Wexford is by means of a partnership between Waterford and Wexford ETB and Wexford County Council.

The Forth Mountain Outdoor Education and Training Centre referred to by the Deputy is being purpose built by Wexford County Council and there has been consultation between Waterford and Wexford Education and Training Board and the local authority on this project.

My Department is not directly involved in the building project but we have received a copy of the proposal from the ETB to relocate the services and facilities of Shielbaggan Outdoor Education and Training Centre to this new facility, and this is currently under review.
