Cleggan Coast Guard currently operate out of the historic rocket house which does not have those facilities. The provision of a permanent Coast Guard base there is part of the Coast Guard's multi-annual building programme. This programme is funded by my Department and delivered through the OPW as project managers. This project is a priority for the Coast Guard.
