Department of Education and Skills
392. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if a report has been submitted to his Department regarding a new campus for Cavan Institute, Cathedral Road, Drumalee, County Cavan; and if the plans are advanced. [49680/21]
Cavan ETB has identified the development of the site of the former Army Barracks in Cavan as an opportunity to centralise further education and training provision and eliminate the need for various rented accommodation arrangements around Cavan town.
Plans are currently being advanced by the ETB for interim temporary accommodation for Cavan Institute on the Barracks site. Funding was approved in late Summer by my Department for works associated with delivery of the interim accommodation. The project is currently with the ETB to progress.
