Written Answers. - Howth (Dublin) Transport Museum.

243. Mr. R. Bruton asked the Minister for Arts, Culture and the Gaeltacht whether he has examined proposals to upgrade the Transport Museum in Howth, County Dublin; whether financial assistance would be forthcoming for such a project; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Minister for Arts, Culture and the Gaeltacht (Mr. M. Higgins): I have no statutory responsibility for the Howth Transport Museum, which operates [301] under the auspices of the Transport Museum Society of Ireland. I recently received an application for funding from the Society and my Department will be responding to that request at an early date. I should point out, however, that I have no discretionary funds available in the current year to assist this type of project.
