Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to confirm to the Deputy that my Department has approved additional temporary accommodation to the school in question to facilitate increased enrolments. Responsibility for installing the accommodation has been devolved to the Patron, Kildare Wicklow Education and Training Board (KWETB). 

KWETB has confirmed that a planning application for the accommodation has been lodged with Wicklow County Council and a decision on the application is awaited.
