Written answers (Question to Education)

The Government announced plans in April 2018 for the establishment of 42 new schools over the next four years (2019 to 2022), including a new 16 classroom school to be established in September 2019 to serve the Goatstown_Stillorgan_DLR school planning area. 

The Department is currently examining all potential suitable site options to serve the relevant area and in the interim the school will be established in Sept 2019 in suitable interim accommodation pending delivery of its permanent school building.  The Department has applied for planning permission to Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council to use a building (on a rental basis) on Ballymoss Road, Sandyford Business Park as the interim location for the school.
