Written answers (Question to Public)

The Office of Public Works (OPW) manages over 2,500 properties on behalf of the State which include office accommodation, heritage properties, visitor centres, Garda stations, warehouses and sundry others.

I am advised by the Commissioners of Public Works that some of the information sought by the Deputy is not readily available and is currently being collated as completely as possible. A detailed response will issue to the Deputy as soon as it is available.
