519 Deputy Joe McHugh asked the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will guarantee that the Greencastle harbour development project in County Donegal will receive in 2009 the €12 million funding that can be made available by his Department; if he is committed to completing the breakwater at Greencastle harbour; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

My Department has provided significant funding for the development in Greencastle since it commenced in 2007. In the current year €3.6 million has been provided for the construction of the breakwater. As the 2009 Fishery Harbour and Coastal Infrastructure Development Programme has not yet been drafted I am not in a position to state the level of funding available for Greencastle or any other harbour projects. Funding for the Greencastle will however be given consideration on the basis of the Exchequer allocation for 2009 and overall national priorities.
