As part of the arrangement to secure a site from Kildare County Council for the new second level school at Ballymakealy, Celbridge, County Kildare, my Department's building unit transferred the ownership of a 12 acre site at Mooretown, Celbridge, to the Kildare County Council in 1998. No other property has been disposed of by my Department since the Govern ment came into office other than items of nil value such as obsolete office equipment.
