My departmental colleague Minister O' Brien has this week announced the Fire Services Capital Programme.
I'm delighted to say that within the programme . . .
For Carlow: Carlow Town will be funded for one new fire engine and Muine Bheag fire station is to receive funding for refurbishment.
For Kilkenny: Kilkenny City and Urlingford are to receive funding for two new fire stations and a fire engine, respectively.
