I thank the Senator. The design team for the school has submitted a stage 2a report to the Department and this is currently under review by the Department’s professional and technical officers. Once this review is completed, its outcome will be shared with the school authority. The Department will continue to provide practical support and assistance to the school authority’s design team throughout the process.

Therefore, the next stage is for that review by the Department’s professional and technical officers. As soon as that is completed, it will go back to the school. Again, I thank the Senator for raising this matter. I assure him that the Department of Education is committed to moving this project forward as quickly as possible. I know how important this project is for the people of Clonmel. The Department of Education will continue to liaise with the school to progress this crucial project for CBS High School Clonmel. As I said, I will also mention to the Minister that Senator Ahearn raised it here today.
