I am pleased to provide the Deputy with details of capital projects being progressed under National Development Plan currently in the area referred to.

The attached table details further education and training (FET) projects being progressed by Cork Education & Training Board (CETB) who have responsibility for projects in Cork, including the region referred to by the Deputy.

As there are no higher education institutions in the area in question there are no projects to advise on.

In addition to the FET projects listed in the attached table, I wish to advise the Deputy of the Devolved Grant which supports the ETB network in addressing their most urgent infrastructural requirements. Under this funding stream Cork ETB received €580,000 for 2023.  This funding is managed at local level and may be used to address works such as maintenance and refurbishment of facilities; replacement and upgrade of equipment, including ICT equipment; and small-scale building works in the context of the delivery of strategic goals.
