Written answers (Question to Culture)

I can confirm that my Department recently received an application for funding from Donegal County Council in relation to the development of Rannagh Pier, Árainn Mhór, County Donegal. 

My officials are currently examining this application and a decision will be made in due course.  It is important to restate that, as with all such projects, the Rannagh Pier development will have to be examined under the terms of the Public Spending Code and in the context of the funding available for island infrastructure development and the various demands on that funding.
