Tourism; Culture; Gaeltacht; Sport and Media | Department mission statement

To ask the Minister for Tourism; Culture; Arts; Gaeltacht; Sport and Media the degree to which she continues to pursue the mission statement of her Department under each heading, with a view to ensuring the maximum support in all situations; and if she will make a statement on the matter.


The Mission Statement for my Department is

“To lead the sustainable development of Tourism, Media and the Gaeltacht and promote participation in the Culture, Arts, Sports and the Irish language supporting social progress, and enhancing cultural and economic growth across Irish society”.

As I have previously advised, in response to Parliamentary Question No 153 of 29th September and Parliamentary Question No 45 of 21st June 2022, my Department’s Statement of Strategy 2021-2023, published in August 2021, sets out by sector the actions that my Department is taking to support the areas of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Sports, Media and the Irish language.

In addition and in order to meet the challenges arising from cost of living increases and ensure continued supports for the Sectors, on  28th September last I announced details of a €1,142m gross funding allocation for my Department under Budget 2023. This funding support brings a wide range of important new initiatives and a continuation of some existing measures to support further growth and development for these Sectors.

Further information in relation to my Department’s policies, initiatives and budget 2023 details, may be found on my Department’s Website: (Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport).
