The European Investment Bank is providing a loan of €490 million to Ireland to part-support the construction of the new children’s hospital and associated outpatient and urgent care centres. I am informed by the National Treasury Management Agency that €245 million of this loan has so far been drawn down.
The Department of Health have advised that there are no current plans for a further loan for this project.
