Discussions are on-going with the authorities of the schools to which the Deputy refers in relation to their accommodation needs. Meetings have also taken place with both Kildare County Council and Athy Town Council with a view to ensuring that the appropriate level of educational provision is made in the context of planned housing developments. The Department expects to be in a position to make a decision on the long term needs of the area shortly.
