Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
Sports Facilities Provision
536. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the status of the development of a new stadium (details supplied) in County Donegal; if further documents will be required from the club following the information that was sent to his Department in August 2016; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [35926/16]
As the Deputy is aware, officials from my Department have engaged with Finn Harps and the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) to try to progress this matter. I understand that my Department's technical advisor is currently examining the invoices on hand for work to date and is also considering the updated quantity surveyor's report. This material was received in August 2016 and details the estimated cost of completing the project. This examination is anticipated to be concluded shortly and it is then expected that a follow up meeting with Finn Harps and the FAI will be required to consider the matter further.
