A recent proposal has been submitted in regard to acquiring the lands in question.

Council Dublin VEC had expressed an interest in acquiring the lands for the development of administrative offices. However, final decisions concerning this proposal have not been reached. Central to any decision in this matter is an analysis of the likelihood of my Department requiring the lands for any educational use in the future. This analysis is ongoing.
