Department of Defence
797. To ask the Taoiseach and Minister for Defence the status of the Reserve Defence Forces company headquarters building on Green Road, Carlow; if the building is still assigned to the Reserve Defence Forces or has been sold; if not, the body that controls the property; if the State has contracted private security for the property; and if so, the length and total cost of that contract to date. [19417/22]
I wish to advise the Deputy that the Reserve Defence Forces occupied a property at Green Road, Carlow via a Lease arrangement with Carlow County Council. A Deed of Surrender was executed by my Department in October 2016 effectively releasing its leasehold back to the County Council as the property was no longer in use by the Reserve Defence Forces. This property is not in the ownership of my Department nor does it have any legal interest in same.
