Capital expenditure for my Department in 2019 amounted to €70.108 million. In addition, the sum of €0.7m was expended in respect of capital carried over into 2019 from 2018.  All figures are provisional as they are subject to audit by the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General and adjustments  may fall to be made.  Details of the final outturn for the Department will be published in the Annual Appropriation Account for 2019 and will be made available on the website of the Comptroller and Auditor General later this year.

The original capital funding allocated by my Department to Waterways Ireland in 2019 was €4,380,000.  In November 2019, there was an additional allocation of €725,000 bringing the total allocation to €5,105,000.

The following table details the capital projects undertaken,and the funding allocated to each project, by Waterways Ireland in 2019.
