General Report No. 85 of the Comptroller and Auditor General: Accountability and Governance on the National College of Art and Design
Mr. Stewart Roche:
The €8 million the Chairman referred to is mainly constituted by €7 million for student residences. The position in Carriganore, as I understand it, is that the project has stalled. The costs in relation to that particular project have increased quite substantially. It was originally estimated that it was going to cost something of the order of €2.5 million to complete. I think it has gone up quite substantially from that figure. There is an issue of funding around it.
