PAC Meeting | Feb 26, 2015
Deputy John Deasy: I was looking for the correspondence from the Secretary General of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht; I do not know if it was sent to me.

Chairman (Deputy John McGuinness): Was it in the last paragraph?
Deputy John Deasy: It is just the same old raméis that I have seen in the past year. It is vague. There are no specifics.

Deputy John Deasy: What I told him was very clear, and he was clear in his response, but that is anything but clear.
