I propose to take Questions Nos. 265, 266 and 268 together.
I refer the Deputy to my response to Parliamentary Question 1720/19, answered today, which sets out in detail the consultation process for Heritage Ireland 2030 and the various ways in which my Department is engaging in the course of that process with groups, communities and individuals who have an interest in our heritage.
The Heritage Council, which my Department funds, has community engagement as a primary focus, and this focus is now enhanced and strengthened under the provisions of the Heritage Act 2018. The allocation of its resources across the range of programmes and initiatives it supports is a matter for the Heritage Council, which is independent in the performance of its functions. Details of the programmes and supports operated by the Heritage Council may be found on its website www.heritagecouncil.ie.
