Written answers (Question to Education)

This cross-border pilot project was funded from the Reconciliation Fund, which is managed by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. If this project was extended to 100 similar projects, I would estimate the cost to that Department would amount approximately to €2.1 million.
