Minister for Health (Mr. Noonan, Limerick East): As I have stated previously, the Department has agreed a timeframe within which the purchase of the International Missionary Training Hospital, Our Lady of Lourdes,  Drogheda, County Louth will be completed. However, this forms part of the overall negotiations, which are confidential to the parties involved. The Deputy will appreciate that it would not be appropriate for me to comment at this time on any element of those negotiations.
