Mr. M. Smith Mr. M. Smith
Minister for Defence (Mr. M. Smith): My Department has researched a number of options to facilitate the staff at Clancy Barracks when it closes later this year. These options include relocation to the Curragh with existing work; redeployment to other Dublin units; and volun tary early retirement. The issue of a disturbance package for those civilian employees who move from Clancy Barracks to a barracks outside of the Dublin city area is also being examined.
