Ceisteanna (338)

Mattie McGrath

Ceist:

338. Deputy Mattie McGrath asked the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform if he will investigate the possibility of keeping a set of flags on Cahir Castle similar to those currently at the site as part of the filming of a film (details supplied) after filming ceases in view of the fact it adds to the colour, history and heritage of the popular tourist town; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

The flags in question at Cahir Castle are a temporary installation created solely for the purposes of the film currently being shot there and are the property of the film company.   

Currently the OPW have no plans to install flagpoles as a permanent fixture at this location; however the matter will be considered in the light of the suitability of the site and the requirement to seek Ministerial Consent under the National Monuments Acts for any such works.
