Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to confirm to the Deputy that my Department is continuing to monitor enrolments in the area concerned and in that regard my Department approved additional accommodation in that area to provide additional school places for September 2014. In recent days my Department has been made aware of 4 pupils who do not currently have a Post Primary place in the area concerned. I understand that the Educational Welfare Service of TUSLA is working with the parents of the children in question and the local schools with a view to securing school places for them as soon as possible.
