Ceisteanna ar Pholasaí nó ar Reachtaíocht - Questions on Policy or Legislation
Brendan Griffin (Kerry, Fine Gael)
We missed Kilgarvan on this itinerary but we will get to it the next time. We visited Fitzgerald Stadium, which is the home of Kerry football. We did not get to meet the Sam Maguire Cup on this occasion but I assured the Tánaiste that the people of Kerry are giving it the best of hospitality. We did meet the Clifford brothers. The Tánaiste saw the condition of the stadium, which requires substantial investment. In that context, I want to ask him when the next round of the large-scale sport infrastructure fund will open. It is an excellent fund for projects of that scale and a stadium such as Fitzgerald Stadium in Killarney, the home of Kerry football, certainly would be in line for an application under the fund. It is important that the next round be progressed.
