Government dithering on Clare County Council’s proposed takeover of Shannon Heritage is damaging to the assets there, staff morale and ultimately Clare tourism. A high-level person needs to be appointed by gov’t to bring decision makers in relevant Depts and national/local govt bodies together.
Contrary to what the Taoiseach told me yesterday about the proposed transfer of Shannon Heritage sites to Clare County Council: “the Minister is working on this with all the stakeholders to try to get this resolved”, Councillors were told this morning that the Council was informed on Budget Day that the required funding was being refused. This is no way to treat the workers there.
Unfortunately, there is still no update from the Taoiseach on the future of the Shannon Heritage sites in Clare.
