Written answers (Question to Public)

I am advised by the Commissioners of Public Works that Donegal County Council own and maintain the former Lifford Army Barracks complex in Lifford. The Commissioners of Public Works have agreed terms with the Council to lease one of the buildings on the complex and a draft lease is being progressed. On completion of the lease, the Commissioners propose to fit-out the building as a new public office for the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection.
