Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
185. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if his Department provided funding for festivals to local authorities this year; if so, if he will provide in tabular form a breakdown by local authority of the funding they received; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [44486/14]
The operation of festival funding programmes is a matter for the board and management of Fáilte Ireland. Therefore I have referred the Deputy's Question to them for further information and direct reply.
Please advise my private office if you do not receive a reply within ten working days.
