  160.  Mr. Allen  Information on Bernard Allen  Zoom on Bernard Allen   asked the Minister for Arts, Heritage Gaeltacht and the Islands  Information on Síle de Valera  Zoom on Síle de Valera   the reasons the application by a theatre company (details supplied) in County Cork for ACCESS funding submitted was rejected by her Department. [24577/01]

Minister for Arts, Heritage, Gaeltacht and the Islands (Miss de Valera): Information on Síle de Valera  Zoom on Síle de Valera  My decisions on the ACCESS scheme were based on the recommendations made by the advisory committee, which evaluated all eligible applications. Unfortunately, on foot of this evaluation, the project referred to by the Deputy was not recommended by this committee and therefore was not included in the list of projects put before me for consideration. The funding available under ACCESS is £36 million. The scheme attracted great interest and was oversubscribed with 180 project promoters seeking grant aid in the order of £224 million. In these circumstances difficult decisions had to be taken and many worthwhile projects had to be omitted from the final list.
