HC Deb 01 May 1894 vol 24 c31

I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the Congested Districts Board have decided to carry out the recommendations made to them by certain members of the Board for the construction of a pier, and another at Sneem, also boat-slips on the north side of Valentia, and at Castle Cove, and whether it is a fact that on the coast of South Kerry, from Rosbeigh to Culcross Point, a distance of more than 100 miles, no works have been undertaken?


I beg to point out to my hon. Friend that the recommendations made to the Congested Districts Board by its members are regarded as confidential. The construction of a pier at Sneem has been deferred pending an application to the Grand Jury for a presentment for an approach road to the site of the proposed pier. The Board have favourably considered the construction of a boat-slip on Valentia Island, but have not yet decided as to the precise site for the work. The Board have provisionally approved of six; undertakings along the coast between the points mentioned in the concluding paragraph of the question, and of these one work (a boat-slip and breakwater at Coonanna) is now in course of construction.
