In addition to the €23 million paid for the school, the Department of Education and Skills is not providing access for children in Dublin 8 or Dublin 12. A sum of €23 million was divvied out for a site and a school will be built on it. A football could be kicked to Dublin 8 or Dublin 12 from the site in Harold's Cross, but the children in those areas will not be allowed to attend. That problem is in addition to dishing out €23 million of the taxpayers' money.
