Ceisteanna (154)

Arthur Spring

Ceist:

154. Deputy Arthur Spring asked the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine the way the amount allocated to Kerry County Council for local authority projects approved for funding under the storm damage programme was calculated; the reason for the discrepancy between the amount allocated to County Kerry and other coastal counties in view of the length of the County Kerry coastline and the number of piers in the county.

I am pleased to inform the Deputy that Kerry County Council applied for funding for 13 projects under my Department's Local Authority Storm Damage Programme and received offers of funding for all thirteen. Funding of €114,165 is being made available to the Council, which in accordance with the terms and conditions of the programme, is 90% of the total cost of the projects submitted.
