Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that the current status of large-scale projects being delivered under project Ireland 2040 may be viewed on my Department's website, www.education.ie and this information is updated regularly. In addition, a list of large-scale projects completed from 2010 to date may also be viewed on the website.

In particular, the Deputy will be aware that a Major project for St. Farnan's Post Primary RN 70720G in Prosperous, Co. Kildare has been devolved for delivery to Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board (KWETB). I can confirm to the Deputy that KWETB is in the process of appointing a Design Team in that respect. I can also advise the Deputy that this project is being delivered in the area in question to meet an identified demographic demand.
