Department of Education and Science
Schools Building Projects
Question 101: To ask the Tánaiste and Minister for Education and Skills the position regarding a site for a school (details supplied) in County Cork; when this site will become available to the school; when building work will commence on the school; the overall timescale for this project; the total funding she has committed to this project and the funding that has been spent to date on this project. [45131/10]
My Department has reached agreement, in principle, subject to contract with Cork County Council and contracts are awaited. My Department is in ongoing liaison with the local authority on this matter. Due to the commercial sensitivities relating to site acquisitions, I am not in a position to comment further on the matter at this time.
