On the 15 October 2018, I announced a series of eight regional consultation meetings for Civil Defence volunteers. The meetings were held in each Major Emergency Management region between 24 October and 28 November, 2018. The objective of these meetings was to allow Civil Defence volunteers have their say on the future direction of Civil Defence in Ireland.

Details of the dates and the locations in which the consultation meetings took place in are provided in the following table.

Date Location
24 October, 2018 Dublin
30 October, 2018 Westmeath
12 November, 2018 Wexford
14 November, 2018 Monaghan
15 November, 2018 Donegal
19 November, 2018 Limerick
21 November, 2018 Cork

These eight consultation meetings were the only public consultations held by my Department in the period covered by the Deputy's question.
