Written answers (Question to Education)

The project to which the Deputy refers is devolved for delivery to the Cork Education and Training Board (CETB). Under this arrangement, it will be a matter for the CETB to appoint a Design Team for the design and construction phases of the project.

Following a request from the CETB for a review of the long term projected enrolments, my Department is revising the schedule of accommodation to provide capacity for 600 pupils. This process is currently in train and my Department will be in further contact with the CETB as soon as the revised accommodation brief has been finalised.
