I wish to advise the Deputy that the building in question is being used by Ormonde College of Further Education for the provision Post Leaving Courses since September 2018.

However, it is open to the organisation referred to by the Deputy to contact Kilkenny and Carlow Education and Training Board with a view to having access to the building outside of college time.
