Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht
Horse Sport Ireland
356. To ask the Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht her views on matters raised (details supplied) in relation to the proposed move by Horse Sport Ireland to a new centre of excellence in Greenogue, County Dublin. [13497/21]
National Governing Bodies of Sport such as Horse Sport Ireland are independent, autonomous bodies and are responsible for their own operational arrangements and procedures for their sports. The decision by Horse Sport Ireland regarding the relocation of its premises is entirely a matter for Horse Sport Ireland.
I understand that both the Minister and Minister of State for Agriculture, Food and the Marine have engaged with Horse Sport Ireland on this matter.
