Consideration of Public Petition on Saving the Services of the Owenacurra Centre in Cork: Discussion (Resumed)
I thank Mr. Fitzgerald. Before I allow other members in, I have a few points myself. Can Mr. Fitzgerald give us a date on which the closing of Owenacurra was discussed? The Irish Examinerhas given a date of 2019, while other reports have stated that it was 2021.Is it not strange that a development that would upend people's lives so much apparently took place during meetings for which no records were kept? We talk about best practice. Is it not strange that these types of meetings take place at which no one records the discussions that go on?
