Written answers (Question to Education)

I can confirm that the Department of Education and South Dublin County Council have reached agreement in principle on the transfer of a site within the SDZ to which you refer. We presently await confirmation of necessary internal approvals from SDCC to dispose of the site after which we would expect legal conveyancing to commence. It would be our intention to advance the architectural planning process in tandem with said legal conveyancing.

Unfortunately, I am not in a position to divulge anything further at this point, but we are committed to making further public announcements, when appropriate.
