I propose to take Questions Nos. 406 to 408, inclusive, together.

The Large Scale Sport Infrastructure Fund opened for applications on 19th November 2018 and the closing date for receipt of applications was 17th April 2019.

An application has been made for funding towards the design of the redevelopment of the stadium referred to by the Deputy. That application is one of 72 applications received. Details of all applications have been published on the Department's website. The detailed evaluation procedures have also been published on the Department's website.

As set out in this evaluation process, applicants were given an opportunity to provide corrected and amended documentation, where necessary, in support of applications. This part of the process is now complete and detailed assessment work of the applications has commenced. In view of the detailed information contained in each application I expect that it will be towards the end of this year before assessments are completed.

Neither I nor Minister Ross has met with the development committee to discuss the proposed redevelopment.
