As the Deputy is aware, the project for the school in question is included on my Department's Capital Programme.
Officials in my Department continue to liaise with officials in Fingal County Council in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding in relation to the identification and acquisition of a suitable site for this school. As with other site acquisitions in the area, due to the scarcity of suitable sites this process has proven to be quite challenging and in that context has taken some time to date. Potential site options have been identified.
Officials from my Department are due to meet with senior officials in Fingal County Council shortly to discuss.
