Minister for Tourism and Transport (Mr. S. Brennan): Information on Seamus Brennan  Zoom on Seamus Brennan  I recently gave approval for investment by CIE of £18 million in 17 new railcars for use on suburban lines in the Dublin and Cork areas, including [1824] the Dublin/Maynooth line. This investment will enable Iarnród Éireann to improve the quality of their suburban commuter rail services in these areas.

The expenditure will be funded entirely by CIE from a combination of their own resources and borrowings.
