Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that a suitable site has been identified and the acquisition process is underway for the purpose of providing permanent school accommodation in Carrigtwohill.

As the Deputy will be aware, however, a process is currently underway by the Patron in relation to the proposed amalgamation of the two schools concerned. The building project that it will be possible to progress into architectural planning will depend on the outcome of this process.
