Written answers (Question to Education)

My Department is committed to providing permanent accommodation to meet the needs of the school to which the Deputy refers.

In this regard, officials in my Department are in active engagement with officials from Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council to further appraise two potential site options in terms of technical suitability. Once the final preferred site option has been identified, negotiations with the landowner in respect of the proposed acquisition of this site will commence.

Given the commercial sensitivities associated with land acquisitions generally, I am not in a position to comment further at this time.
