Written Answers. - Clonakilty (Cork) School.

P. J. Sheehan

Question:

122 Mr. Sheehan asked the Minister for Education the progress which has been made in providing a new boys' national school for Clonakilty, County Cork; and if her attention has been drawn to the fact that 187 children are packed into five small school rooms in the present old school house, which has no playground facilities.

I am aware of the situation in relation to Clonakilty boys' national school, County Cork. The question of the provision of a new school building is being considered in the context of the available capital and the large number of projects on hands. A decision will be conveyed to the school authorities at the earliest possible date.
