Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Culture Policy (29 Sep 2022)

Jack Chambers: My Department is liaising with Galway 2020 on the development and implementation of the proposed legacy framework arising from the designation of Galway as Ireland's 2020 European Capital of Culture. In that regard, Galway 2020 is due to submit its proposals on the proposed legacy programme shortly and I would expect that the €1 million available will be spent. As set out in the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Culture Policy (29 Sep 2022)

Catherine Connolly: I state reluctantly that the reply is very disappointing and the Minister of State will know why, given the history of this project. It started in 2014 and it is now 2022. He provided a repetition of the answer I received in June about a framework. Where is the framework? Why has it not been published? There were serious issues from day one with this project with regard to constant...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Tourism Industry (29 Sep 2022)

Holly Cairns: I raised similar points with the Minister for the Environment, Climate and Communications, Deputy Eamon Ryan, last week but I am not convinced that the Government appreciates how many family-run businesses and SMEs are close to closing. It is likely that many will at least shut temporarily during the winter and some may not reopen without proper support. The VAT rate for the sector is...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Tourism Industry (29 Sep 2022)

Jack Chambers: I share the Deputy's frustration with regard to the ESB and agree there should be better co-ordination to support businesses in towns and villages when particular maintenance has to be done. It is unfortunate that a day's business has been lost. There should be better engagement on such matters. On the Deputy's wider points, I will raise the issue of the cost of card payments with the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Tourism Industry (29 Sep 2022)

Holly Cairns: While I acknowledge that there is lots of Government engagement with the sector, ultimately there is a significant discrepancy between what tourism and hospitality businesses in Cork south west are telling me and the messaging from the Minister of State, his Department and others. The Government must be getting similar briefings to the ones I am getting but the urgency and need is not being...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Tourism Industry (29 Sep 2022)

Jack Chambers: We absolutely acknowledge the importance of the tourism and hospitality sector for employment in the regions and that is why in budget 2022 the Government allocated €67 million in additional funding for tourism, which brought the overall budget to €288 million. A total of €50 million was provided for tourism business continuity. Many schemes were operated through...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Caiteachas Gaeilge agus Gaeltachta (29 Sep 2022)

Jack Chambers: Mar aitheantas ar na dúshláin sin, d'fhógair mé ardú ar bhuiséad bhonnlíne clár na leabhar Gaeilge don bhliain 2023, mar a dúirt mé. Is é seo an chéad ardú ar an mbuiséad le seacht mbliana anuas agus nuair a chuirtear é sin in éineacht leis an maoiniú aon-uaire de €300,000 a cheadaigh muid i mbliana,...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sport and Recreational Development (29 Sep 2022)

Neale Richmond: 9. To ask the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht the steps she is taking to promote female involvement in sports from a young age; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [47505/22]

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sport and Recreational Development (29 Sep 2022)

Mattie McGrath: Question No. 9 is being taken by Deputy Alan Farrell.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sport and Recreational Development (29 Sep 2022)

Alan Farrell: I am taking this question on behalf of Deputy Richmond. It relates to the promotion of participation in sport among women and girls and what the Government is doing to encourage that uptake of sport.

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sport and Recreational Development (29 Sep 2022)

Jack Chambers: A fundamental aim of the national sports policy is to increase the level of participation across the population, with a specific focus on less represented groups, including women and girls. In May 2022, my Department held a youth stakeholder forum on sport at which we gathered young people together to identify the barriers keeping them from sport and to gain insight into how those...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sport and Recreational Development (29 Sep 2022)

Alan Farrell: I thank the Minister of State for his comprehensive response. It is really important that the Government not just be seen to promote participation in sport at a young age but also do so. That is critical. As the slogan goes, if they cannot see it, they cannot be it. The platforming of young women and girls in sport is really important because, as the Minister of State rightly pointed out,...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sport and Recreational Development (29 Sep 2022)

Jack Chambers: In addition to that, we are developing a new national physical activity plan with the Department of Health, and I chaired a recent meeting of the sports leadership group. I have got a lot of input from the Federation of Irish Sport and some of the governing bodies, so we have a new and evidence-based physical activity plan. I think that will complement the promotional campaigns Sport...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sport and Recreational Development (29 Sep 2022)

Alan Farrell: There is a cross-departmental aspect to all this, notwithstanding the extraordinarily generous grants administered by the Minister of State's Department in the form of the sports capital programme and the impact that that can have on communities up and down the country. We know, and the Minister of State, being from a very fast-growing young community just like mine, will know too, that the...

Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions: Sport and Recreational Development (29 Sep 2022)

Jack Chambers: The Deputy is correct, in that some schools have embraced this and are open until 9 o'clock or 10 o'clock at night. There is a huge amount of PE and other activity during the day in those schools, and they open their doors for sporting organisations to use their facilities in the evening. Other schools do not have the facilities and are closed when the school day finishes. The Department...
