Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy is aware and has been recently advised, work is progressing and is ongoing in respect of technical matters crucial to the delivery of the acquisition. My Department is continuing to actively engage regularly with Kildare Co. Co. and the Landowner, who is currently presenting a masterplan of the site as a whole. It remains a priority for my Department to make progress on this acquisition.

Due to the commercially sensitive nature of site acquisitions in general and this one in particular - I am unable to elaborate further but please rest assured that this project is still being given our full attention.
