Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy will be aware from our recent meeting, South Dublin County Council has identified a site, adjacent to the site where the school to which he refers is in temporary accommodation, which may be suitable to provide a permanent building for this school. As the Deputy will be aware, however, there are a number of issues with this site, including issues relating to access to the site and its restricted size. The proposal is being reviewed within my Department and officials from my Department are liaising with officials from South Dublin County Council in this regard.
