Department of Education and Skills
181. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of addressing the shortage of second-level places for the 2020-2021 school year in Ballincollig, County Cork; if the pandemic will have delays on addressing this issue; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [5736/20]
I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department has been working closely with the school Patrons in Ballincollig, County Cork. On this basis, I can advise that there is adequate permanent provision to cater for students seeking to enrol in second-level schools, in the area, for the 2020-21 school year.
