Written answers (Question to Education)

I can confirm that the laneway referred to by the Deputy is in the ownership of the Minister for Education & Skills and forms part of the Joint Campus of the schools referred to.

Maintenance of school grounds are a matter for the school authorities. The Department has contacted a Patron of one of the schools referred to notifying them of the concerns raised and has asked them to seek to resolve the concerns raised in conjunction with the other schools on the campus.
