Question to the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport (Mr. Paschal Donohoe, TD)
To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the plans and capital funding his Department and-or Fáilte Ireland have committed for developing Elizabeth Fort as a key piece of Cork city’s tourism infrastructure; and if he will make a statement on the matter. – Jerry Buttimer
For WRITTEN ANSWER on Tuesday, 10 March 2015.
While my Department provides the capital funding for investment in tourism it is not directly involved in developing individual tourism projects. The matter raised by the Deputy is an operational matter for the board and management of Fáilte Ireland. Accordingly I have referred the question to the agency for direct reply. Please contact my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten days.
