The lands at Hedgestown National school, as referred to by the Deputy, were purchased by the St Laurence O'Toole Diocesan Trust, on behalf of the Board of Management.

An initial site adjacent to the school, was procured from Fingal County Council and transferred ownership on 1st June 2017.

The second site was purchased from a private vendor and ownership transferred on 18th October 2017.

My Department received copies of the deeds of transfer in November 2017.
