I propose to take Questions Nos. 555, 556 and 609 together.

I wish to advise the Deputy that the current status of projects being delivered by my Department may be viewed on my Department's website, www.education.ie.

Large scale projects, including new schools, being delivered under the school building programme are listed by county along with school name and address. The current status of each school project is also provided.

In addition, a list of large-scale projects completed from 2010 to date, - again broken down by county -, along with school name and address may also be viewed on the website.

Regarding other types of projects, - for example additional accommodation, emergency works etc. - , information on these is also available on my Department’s website and includes the school details and the nature of the works.

The status of projects listed on my Department’s website is updated on a regular basis to reflect their progress through the various stages of design, tender and construction.
