Written answers (Question to Education)

As the Deputy may be aware, a project for the school to which she refers is included in the 5 Year Construction Programme that I announced in March 2012. It is my Department's intention that this project will proceed to construction in 2014/15.

The Schedule of Accommodation is currently being finalised and my Department will be in contact with the school authority as soon as this process has been completed. The architectural planning process for the project can be initiated thereafter which includes the appointment of a design team.

The current status of all projects on the school building programme, including the school in question, may be viewed on my Department's website at www.education.ie.
