Covid-19 (Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht): Statements
Josepha Madigan (Dublin Rathdown, Fine Gael)
I meant to say that the OPW looks after the Phoenix Park. The Deputy may wish to contact the OPW about the previous issue.
While it is good that we have many artists using online media to showcase their work, it is not desirable in the long-term and we want to see artists able to perform in an outdoor space such as the Phoenix Park or other such places. Obviously, that can be explored. We are constantly in contact with the Arts Council, which primarily deals with artists, in respect of how we can do that.
