Northern Ireland Issues.
Dermot Ahern (Minister, Department of Foreign Affairs; Louth, Fianna Fail)
As the Deputy is aware, I have pursued both of these issues to the greatest extent possible and appropriate. Raising them again with the British side would not advance either in the absence of further developments of which there have been none. Accordingly, neither of the two matters referred to by the Deputy were raised at the meeting on 1 February 2005.
