  814. Ms B. Moynihan-Cronin asked the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government when he will accede to a request by a group (details supplied) in County Kerry made in January 2005. [22686/05]

  Mr. Roche:My Department will meet shortly with Killarney Town Council to discuss a number of issues including, the request by the town council that land in the Killarney National Park should be made available for a burial ground. As a general principle, any development in an area designated as a national park and a special area of conservation, as is Killarney National Park, should be limited to what would enhance the conservation status of the area or to necessary works for which no alternative location is possible.
