My Department is considering options to address the long-term accommodation needs of Scoil Bhride, Kill, County Kildare, including the option to acquire a site for the school. In this regard, the property management section of the OPW, which acts on behalf of my Department in relation to site acquisitions generally, is exploring the possibility of acquiring a site for the school in question.

Due to the commercial sensitivities of site acquisitions, it is not proposed at this stage to identify the specific sites to be acquired. However, this information will be placed on my Department's website when the relevant acquisitions have been completed.
