More on WI’s offices

Thanks to the excellent Dáil written answers 1 July 2014:

Tony McLoughlin [FG, Sligo-North Leitrim]: To ask the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht if his attention has been drawn to any plans or proposals by Waterways Ireland to close its regional office based at Carrick-on-Shannon, County Leitrim, and reallocate the existing 15 staff members; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Jimmy Deenihan [FG, Kerry North/West Limerick, minister for waterways]: I am informed by Waterways Ireland that it is currently conducting a review of all its offices and depots with a view to determining what its business requirements will be in future years, having regard to any relevant changes in the environment in which it operates. I am further informed by Waterways Ireland that it has not finalised any proposals regarding future office or depot requirements at this time.

There is a list of WI offices here; it does not include various depots, lock offices and other properties.

Fianna Fáil is not in government at the moment and its policy of offices for everyone in the audience might usefully be reversed.
