I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department is committed to providing a permanent accommodation solution for the school referred to.
In this regard, a suitable site has been identified to accommodate a permanent school building for the school. My Department continues to work closely with officials from Monaghan County Council under the Memorandum of Understanding in relation to the acquisition of the site.
As the site acquisition process is complex, it is not possible to give a definitive timeframe for the completion of the acquisition. Once this acquisition process is complete, the project for the provision of a new permanent building will be progressed into the architectural planning process without delay.
