Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that the current status of large building projects, including those in Maynooth Co. Kildare being delivered under the school building programme is available 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.

The Capital Programme also provides for devolved funding for additional classrooms, if required, for schools where an immediate enrolment need has been identified or where an additional teacher has been appointed. All school capital projects that have been approved by my Department under the Additional Accommodation Scheme, may also be viewed on my Department's website and this is updated regularly.
