Aengus Ó Snodaigh asked the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform further to a previous parliamentary question asking if it was acceptable that Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council will be forced to purchase Shanganagh castle back from the private developers for public use at a greatly inflated cost, that in 2003 Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council expressly stated that it had no interest in the remaining 6.33 acres including Shanganagh Castle if he will confirm if council has expressed interest in the site to him since 2003.

Mr. McDowell Mr. McDowell
Mr. McDowell: As I stated in Parliamentary Questions Nos. 241 & 242 of Tuesday 24 October, 2006, officials from the Dún Laoghaire/Rathdown County Council including the County Manager recently requested access to carry out an inspection of the property and this was facilitated. While the officials expressed a general interest in the property no formal request or offer to purchase the property was received from the Council.
