No EU receipts were received by or channelled through my Department in 2017.

My Department normally receives EU receipts in relation to the funding it provides for Technical Assistance for the two North South cross-border PEACE and INTERREG programmes. However no receipts were received in 2017 as the current round of programmes were at an early stage of implementation.

My Department is also responsible as Member State for the two national ERDF programmes, Southern and Eastern Regional Operational Programme and Border, Midland and Western Regional Operational Programme. EU receipts for these programmes are remitted directly to the Exchequer and are not channelled through the Department.In 2017 receipts in the amount of €23,577,660 were remitted directly to the Exchequer.
