To date I had been communicating with OPW officials via their Press Office.
I was assured by this official that she would look into the matter and call me back before noon.
Predictably, there was no call back. After several attempts today I finally spoke with the same official who made it crystal clear to me that my questions were not going to be answered.
When I asked for the specific rule/regulation/law she was basing her refusal on she told me to put my request in writing.
This is my fourth email to the OPW requesting answers to very simple questions.
Answers that would be forthcoming immediately and without fuss if I lived in a functional democracy.
Re our phone conversation today regarding the missing art work from Leinster House.
I would be grateful if you could confirm to me the precise rules/regulations/laws on which your office is refusing to answer my questions on this matter.
