Sport Ireland, which is funded by my Department, is the statutory body with responsibility for the development of the National Sports Campus at Abbotstown, Blanchardstown.

The total capital funding allocated by my Department between 2000 and 2017 for the development of the National Sports Campus is €180m. This includes capital funding to the former National Sports Campus Development Authority, the  body which had responsibility for the development of the National Sports Campus prior to the establishment of Sport Ireland in 2015, and Campus and Stadium Ireland Development Ltd (CSID), the body which preceded the Authority.

A further €6.7m has been allocated for 2018.

I have referred the Deputy's question to Sport Ireland for direct reply in relation to expenditure by type of sport. I would ask the Deputy to contact my office if a reply has not been received within ten days.

A referred reply was forwarded to the Deputy under Standing Order 42A.
