Written Answers. - Harbours and Piers.

  247. Mr. Deenihan asked the Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources when work will begin on the pier at Cromane, County Kerry; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [4604/06]

  Mr. Gallagher: I am pleased to inform the Deputy that, as part of the Department’s fishery harbours development programme for 2006, I have approved funding of €200,000 to progress the development at Cromane. This allocation will enable the purchase of lands for provision of the access road to the pier to be advanced. It is expected that this process will be completed in the current year. If so, it is also intended this year to commence preliminary works on access to the site including provision of boundary fencing.
