Written answers (Question to Education)

The school to which the Deputy refers opened under the patronage divestment process in 2015 and is currently in interim accommodation pending delivery of the school's permanent accommodation.

In this regard, my Department has been liaising with the HSE in relation to the possible provision of the school's permanent accommodation in part of a HSE-owned property.

The delivery of permanent accommodation for divested schools can involve complex factors and my Department officials are considering the best way to provide for same.
