I can confirm to the Deputy that in 2013 there were 23 rented prefab units in schools in Co Waterford. However this has been reduced to 6 rented prefab units as of 31st December 2018. The information in relation to 2008 rental prefab units is not available.

Please note that a prefab unit may consist of one or more classrooms and/or ancillary accommodation and the current average rental cost for mainstream classroom is approximately €14,000 plus VAT.
