Written answers (Question to Culture)

There are currently no plans to change the funding arrangements with respect to Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann. Rather, in the recognition of the importance of all forms of the traditional arts, my Department will continue to explore with all stakeholders how best to strengthen, preserve and develop this sector across the island of Ireland and beyond.
