Vol. 98 No. 12

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Mornette School (Leix).

asked the Minister for Education if he has received representations of protest on behalf of the people of the parish of Emo, County Leix, with reference to a proposal to close the school at Mornette, Emo, where 49 pupils are in attendance; and if he will allow this school to remain open in accordance with the wishes of the local people.

Representations have been received in my Department with regard to this matter.

The feasibility of replacing Mornette and the Heath National Schools—two old buildings—by a modern central school conveniently situated for the pupils attending both schools is engaging the attention of my Department. All aspects of the matter will be fully and carefully considered before a final decision is reached.
