I can confirm that I attended the official launch of Project Ireland 2040, in Sligo, on 16 February 2018. Minister of State Sean Kyne was also in attendance. Two officials and one advisor from my Department travelled to the launch. Any officials or advisors attending are entitled to claim the appropriate travel and subsistence allowance in compliance with Department of Finance travel and subsistence circulars, including Circular 11/82 Travelling and Subsistence Regulations and Circular 07/2009 Travel and Subsistence rates.
