An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
Michael Healy-Rae (Kerry, Independent)
Going back to the programme for Government, I would like to thank the Minister, Deputy Josepha Madigan, for her interest and the work that she and her officials have done with regard to Moanveanlagh Bog in north Kerry. A couple of weeks ago an official in her Department asked for information which he was duly given and which has not been acted upon yet. It relates to a specific landowner who is very co-operative in wanting turf cut in that particular section of bog. There is a right of way issue and all the information has been given to the Department. All we want is for the officials in Minister's Department to continue the good work they have been doing. I am not being critical of them but I am trying to give them one final push because the weather is very good and whether one knows it or not, it is ideal weather for saving turf.
