Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
Sports Facilities Provision
320. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport further to Parliamentary Question No. 536 of 22 November 2016, the progress with regard to the building of a stadium (details supplied) in County Donegal; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [4739/17]
As the Deputy may be aware, officials from my Department have engaged with Finn Harps and the Football Association of Ireland (FAI) on this matter. I am advised that my Department's technical advisor has just completed his consideration of the updated quantity surveyor's report which details the estimated cost of completing the project as the club envisages.
My officials have recently been in touch with the club to arrange a follow up meeting with Finn Harps and the FAI to understand suggestions Finn Harps and the FAI may have for a way forward for the project. It is hoped that this meeting will take place this month.
