I propose to take Questions Nos. 346 and 347 together.

The schools referred to by the Deputy are due to amalgamate. Both schools will continue to operate from the existing school sites until a new school building is provided for the amalgamated school.

The new amalgamated school building will enable facilities to be modernised in an energy efficient building that will be compliant with Part L of the Building Regulations 2017. It will also provide the opportunity for the new school building to have a fully equipped PE Hall facility with fitness suite together with provision of accommodation to meet special education needs in West Cavan at Port-Primary level.

My Department is in receipt of an application, for capital funding for additional school accommodation, from the school referred to by the Deputy. 

The application is under consideration and officials have recently sought additional information from the School authority in this regard.  As soon as this information is received the application will be progressed and a decision will be conveyed directly to the school authority.
