Written answers (Question to Transport)

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

The IRCG is currently in the final stages of settling the lease agreement for the current site and an additional adjacent site from Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine. The matter should be finalised in the coming weeks and can then be progressed with OPW.
