As a colleague in the neighbouring constituency, I am aware of the need for these facilities in the Balbriggan area and the property required. It is a shame that the previous facility was demolished and that there that has been such a long gap in the provision of new facilities. I do not know the history, but I will stress again the urgency of the matter to the officials who are prepared to do what has to be done. The money has been allocated. It has been ring-fenced for this site and there is no danger of it being allocated elsewhere. It was probably delayed as a result of the changes made during the years. While the allocation of additional money in the five year plan was good news, it might also have delayed matters. However, there is an onus on us to move forward as quickly as we can and also to allay fears.
