Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions
Office of Public Works Properties
I do not agree that the OPW has allowed the building to decline. We are seeking an alternative user to take over that building. We are working on this. As I pointed out earlier, several Deputies have come to me with different ideas and approaches. I have worked with them. We have not been able to get anybody to take that building. St. Brigid's Day Care Centre is now interested. We are working closely with that organisation. We will see what the outcome is. Let us allow the discussions to take place before saying that nothing is happening. It is not fair to say that the OPW is not trying to put that building right by finding the right tenant and working with that tenant.
