The current and capital expenditure by Waterways Ireland for the years 2014-2016 and the estimate of expenditure for 2017 are set out in the tabler.
Waterways Ireland is jointly co-sponsored and co-funded by my Department and the Department for Infrastructure, Northern Ireland. The current expenditure of Waterways Ireland is funded 85% by this State and 15% by Northern Ireland. Capital expenditure by the Body is supported directly by each jurisdiction.
In addition to the core grants provided by the two Departments, Waterways Ireland activities are also supported from third-party funding contributions towards specific projects and from its own income from licences and property.
