  1019. Mr. Ring asked the Minister for Health and Children if anyone from his Department or from the Western Health Board have gone down and given counselling to the people affected by the recent landslide in north Mayo, as a lot of people were very upset and disturbed by the flooding and by the landslide. [21281/03]

  Minister of State at the Department of Health and Children (Mr. T. O'Malley): Responsibility for the provision of the type of service referred to by the Deputy rests with the Western Health Board. My Department has therefore asked the chief executive officer of the Western Health Board to investigate the matter and reply to him directly.
