I would like to thank Deputy Crowe for his question in relation to Shannon Heritage. This question has been transferred to me for reply from my colleague, Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media.

I can advise the Deputy that Shannon Group is continuing to engage with the relevant Local Authorities and is working to reach agreement on the transfer of the Shannon Heritage business by the end of the year.

My Department continues to engage with Shannon Group regarding the future of Shannon Heritage and I have been informed that discussions between the parties are progressing and that the required due diligence exercises are underway. This due diligence must be concluded before my formal consent and that of the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform can be given to execute any transfer of the sites, with the agreement of the Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage.
