Joint Oireachtas Committee on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform, and Taoiseach
I want to address that point. All of the individuals who have been working on this project are competent and professional and have been dedicated to trying to deliver it. There were issues with the project's initial estimate and how the higher cost was shared. As I became aware of this issue in the timings that I indicated to the committee, I met many of the individuals involved. They are very skilled professionals. However, the cost of this project and how that cost was shared are issues of grave concern to me.
