Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
Fáilte Ireland Expenditure
My Department's role in relation to tourism lies primarily in the area of national tourism policy. While my Department provides capital funding to Fáilte Ireland for investment in tourism product development, it is not directly involved in the management of individual tourism projects and has no role in the administration of the agency's grants programmes.
Accordingly, I have asked Fáilte Ireland to reply directly to the Deputy with the further detail sought by the Deputy regarding capital funding allocations in the period in question. Please contact my private office if you have not received a reply within ten working days.
