Department of Education and Skills
185. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the actions he is taking to provide permanent accommodation for a school (details supplied) in view of the serious concerns of the school community in relation to the matter; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [2643/20]
As the Deputy may be aware, a site has been identified (with the assistance of South Dublin Co Co) in Oldcourt to accommodate a permanent building for the school to which the Deputy refers. Legal conveyancing is advancing well in respect of the acquisition and is being progressed as a priority. Due to commercial sensitivities, I cannot elaborate further at this juncture
In the interim, my Department is engaging with the school’s Patron Body in relation to the provision of suitable alternative interim accommodation for the school for September 2020.
