Department of Education and Skills
187. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if he will consider funding a proposal to provide alternative temporary accommodation for a school (details supplied) in County Cork; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [28376/14]
The longer term options in respect of the provision of improved accommodation for the school to which the Deputy refers are currently being considered in the context of other school developments in the area and the reorganisation of existing accommodation. In that context, my Department is currently liaising with Cork Education and Training Board with a view to identifying an accommodation solution for the school. The school has recently submitted an updated report to my Department on their current school accommodation and my officials will be in further contact with the school authorities directly in that regard.
