I can confirm that my Department has received applications from the schools referred to in the details supplied by the Deputy for the replacement of temporary accommodation.

I wish to confirm that my Department remains in contact with the second named school regarding its application and my Department's School Capital Appraisals Section in Tullamore expects to be in a position to issue a formal response shortly.  

In the case of the first named school, my Department will be undertaking a site visit in the context of the school's application and is liaising with the school principal in this regard.
