Last month Kilkenny County Council submitted contract documents to my Department in respect of a replacement swimming pool in Kilkenny. These documents are currently being examined by the Department and its technical advisers, the Office of Public Works. I expect to be in a position shortly to approve of the contract documents which will enable the county council to invite tenders for the work proposed.
