Written answers (Question to Transport)

Howth Coast Guard Station is currently on the OPW Building Maintenance Programme for a proposed extension to the rear of the station. This programme is managed by the OPW and my Department provides funding for these projects.

IRCG is currently awaiting both the transfer of the site on which the station is built and an additional adjoining site from Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine before this project can be progressed any further. This issue is currently being dealt with by the Chief State Solicitors Office.
