The Office of Public Works has no statutory responsibility for the boglands at the townlands referred to by the Deputy in his question.
It is the understanding of the Commissioners of Public Works that responsibility for the drainage of the particular boglands lies with the Sugarstown and Kilfane Drainage District, which is overseen by the Local Authority.
