Written answers (Question to Minister for Education and Science)

My Department is considering options to address the long-term accommodation needs of Gaelscoil Cholmcille including the option to acquire a site for the school. In this regard, the property management section of the OPW is acting on behalf of my Department on site acquisitions generally and is currently exploring the possibility of acquiring a site for the school in question.

Due to commercial sensitivities of site acquisitions, it is not proposed at this stage to identify the specific sites to be acquired. However, this information will be placed on my Department's website when the relevant acquisitions have been completed.
