Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that following the site visit carried out at the school, my Department is currently formulating the accommodation brief for the proposed building project to cater for the recently amalgamated primary schools in Tuam.

This will then facilitate the commencement of the architectural planning process, which will include the appointment of a design team, to deliver the project.

Officials from my Department are in regular contact with the school authorities with regard to the project and my Department will be in further contact with the patron when the brief formulation process has been completed.
