In regard to site acquisitions in County Laois I can confirm my Department has current responsibility for the acquisition of one permanent school site: that for Dunamase College, Portlaoise.  This school was established to meet a demographic requirement in the town and has opened in interim accommodation.

A potential permanent site option for the school has been identified and negotiations with the landowner are at a very advanced stage.
