Deputy Martin Mansergh: Documents relating to the construction of the Munster Blackwater (Fermoy North) Drainage Scheme have been issued to the pre-qualified contractors by the Office of Public Works. At the request of the Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, the tender documents have included works to Fermoy Weir. Before a successful contractor is appointed, OPW will, in consultation with the Department, make a decision on whether these works will be included in the contract or not. This will depend on agreement being reached between the Department  of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources and Fermoy Town Council on the proposals for the Weir.
