  128.  Deputy Joanna Tuffy  Information on Joanna Tuffy  Zoom on Joanna Tuffy   asked the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs  Information on Éamon Ó Cuív  Zoom on Éamon Ó Cuív   the funding to be made available for the staffing of the Collinstown Park Sports Hall, Clondalkin, Dublin; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9232/09]

Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs (Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív): Information on Éamon Ó Cuív  Zoom on Éamon Ó Cuív  My Department is currently concluding contract details with the South Dublin VEC to enable funding of the order of €450,000-€500,000 to be provided in 2009 under the Community Services Programme to ensure that services provided at four dual-use school and community facilities are maintained. While separate figures have not been established for the Collinstown facility, my understanding is that the services will be of equal quality across the four centres.

  129.  Deputy Bernard J. Durkan  Information on Bernard Durkan  Zoom on Bernard Durkan   asked the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs  Information on Éamon Ó Cuív  Zoom on Éamon Ó Cuív   the amount of funding awarded by way of grant or other form of aid to various groups throughout County Kildare in the past two years; the degree to which it is expected to improve or increase such aid in 2009; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9251/09]

Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs (Deputy Éamon Ó Cuív): Information on Éamon Ó Cuív  Zoom on Éamon Ó Cuív  The amount of funding awarded by way of grant or other form of aid to various groups throughout County Kildare in the past two years is outlined in the following table. It is obviously necessary to take account of the current economic reality and of the pressure on the public finances in the operation of these schemes and inevitably there will have to be changes affecting the funding of schemes. Against that background, priority will be given to frontline services.
