The Deputy will be aware that the delivery of Maynooth Educational Campus consisting of two 1,000 pupil schools and a shared Sports Facility has been devolved to Kildare and Wicklow Education & Training Board (KWETB).

The assessment of tenders received for the completion of the remaining works for the project in question has recently been completed. It is expected that a tender report will be issued to the Department shortly for approval and that the successful contractor will recommence work on site in early Q3 2019.

The completion date for the two school buildings is June 2020. The completion date for the sports facility is July 2020.

My Department has approved temporary accommodation to the patron and it is understood that KWETB is making arrangements for the installation of this accommodation.
