Deputy Darragh O'Brien asked the Minister for Education and Skills his plans for the Teagasc building in Kinsealy, County Dublin which houses a school (details supplied); if there is capacity for another school to be located in the building in the future; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

As the Deputy is aware, the building to which he refers is not in the ownership of the Minister For Education and Skills, however, the school to which he refers is accommodated at this location on an interim basis pending the delivery of its permanent school building.   

The recently adopted Kinsaley Local Area Plan provides for a new school at that location in order to serve any requirement which may emerge should the residential development which is projected in the LAP materialise.  The need for any such school will be kept under review as part of recurring nationwide demographic analyses.
