The staffing of the Hidden Heartlands Brand Experience is a matter for Fáilte Ireland and I have asked them to reply directly to the Deputy. I should point out that as well as the development work on the brand, Ireland's Hidden Heartlands also benefits from a range of other supports provided by Fáilte Ireland including capital investment, festivals, business tourism and events, enterprise development, business development, marketing, and training.

Please contact my private office if you do not hear from Fáilte Ireland within ten working days.

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