While I have not been in direct contact recently with the Chairperson of the organisation to which the Deputy refers, officials from my Department have spoken with him on a number of occasions during this time.

I had the opportunity to meet with the Director of the organisation in question last week to launch Xenogenesis, a major new exhibition by The Otolith Group, an internationally-renowned artist collective. This remarkable exhibition, which has toured Australia, the U.S., Canada, the United Arab Emirates and Slovenia before arriving with us here in Ireland for its final stop, is a testament to the outstanding programme at of this organisation.

My Department is committed to providing ongoing support to the National Cultural Institutions, maintaining regular contact with all NCI senior management to ensure that any matters that arise are dealt with expeditiously.
