Department of Children and Youth Affairs
209. To ask the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs the present position regarding the application by Cavan County Council-Cavan Sports Partnership for funding to develop a skate park in Cavan town; when the application is likely to be approved; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [53598/13]
My Department has a capital funding allocation of €250,000 in 2013 to support the provision of play and recreation facilities for children and young people. Unfortunately, the application from Cavan County Council/Cavan Sports Partnership was not successful in securing funds towards the development of a skate park in Cavan Town on this occasion and they were notified about this on 2nd December 2013.
