Written answers (Question to Tourism)

Correspondence has been received from the organisation concerned and the matters raised therein are being considered with a view to the issue of a response at the earliest possible date.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, I have had extensive engagement with the long-established representative body for the businesses in question. In addition to this body regularly participating in meetings of the Sports Monitoring Group which I chair, my officials and Sport Ireland have been in ongoing contact with that organisation on matters of concern, including the public health restrictions and advice relating to sport and exercise.
