The Defence Forces says it is working with the Dept. of Defence "with a view to re-opening access to licenced third party users, when it is appropriate to do so".

However, there is no indication when a decision may be forthcoming, or when activities may resume.

Kildare South Independent TD, Cathal Berry, has been speaking to Kildare Today.

Deputy Berry joined Eoin Beatty on Wednesday's edition of the programme.

The Defence Forces says "The DFTC is a working military installation, and as such the access by third parties must be considered in line with current Covid practices and ensuring safety of DF personnel in a working environment.

The Department of Defence and the Defence Forces are working together with a view to reopening access to licenced third party users when it is appropriate to do so, and in line with ongoing military operational requirements."
