I wish to advise the Deputy that the amalgamation process involving the Cahir schools will be finalised with the delivery of the major school building project.
In that regard, the major building project is currently in Architectural Planning. The school were approved to proceed to Stage 2b-Detailed Design in April 2018 and the Design Team are currently working on the Stage 2b report. Planning Permission has been received and the Disability Access Certificate and Fire Safety Certificate have been granted. The Department has written to the school outlining the timeframe for progression of the project to tender and construction stage and the steps involved.
