John O’Dowd [SF] made a ministerial statement to the Northern Ireland Assembly on 3 November 2014, about the recent meeting of the North/South Ministerial Council in education format. His final English-language paragraph was about non-education matters:
Finally, we approved the appointment of Mr Tarlach Ó Crosáin to the board of the trade and business development body from 22 October 2014 to 12 December 2015, and, on behalf of Waterways Ireland, we approved the sale of the freehold interest in property at 9 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2 to Mrs Rita Crosby.
The relevant NSMC minutes are here. There was a waterways NSMC meeting on 27 November 2014 at which “The Council consented to a number of property disposals”, unspecified. Perhaps the sale of the Hanover Quay freehold was a particularly urgent matter that could not wait until November.
If waterways business is going to be done at other sectoral meetings, I may have to read the whole blasted lot of them.
