Deputy John Deasy asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport if he will provide a breakdown of those groups in County Waterford that have been granted Exchequer funding specifically set aside for The Gathering to date; and the amount that has been approved in each instance.
Minister Leo Varadkar passed PQ to Fáilte Ireland for answer (a listing of all ‘Gatherings’ in Waterford City and County that have been approved for funding - total €60,000 - provided as follows):
Dáil Éireann allocates a certain amount of time on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during which Deputies may ask questions of Members of the Government relating to Public Affairs connected with their Departments, or on matters of administration for whch they are officially responsible. The Taoiseach answers questions on his own Department on Tuesdays/Wednesdays.
