Written answers (Question to Tourism)

Scéim na mBóithre Áise, to which the Deputy is referring, has been suspended for some years now. Under the provisions of the scheme which was administered by my Department, financial assistance was provided to the relevant local authorities to undertake repairs in respect of qualifying Gaeltacht roads.

There are no plans to reintroduce this scheme at this time.
