To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of the provision of a new site for a school (details supplied) as announced in November 2015; and if he will make a statement on the matter. (Details Supplied) Gaeilscoil Ros Eo, Rush, Co Dublin.
As the Deputy is aware, a school building project for the school to which he refers is included on my Department's capital programme.
Officials in my Department have been liaising with officials in the relevant Local Authority to acquire a site for the school in line with the Memorandum of Understanding for the acquisition of school sites, and this process is ongoing.
Due to the commercial sensitivities which attach to site acquisitions generally I am not in a position to provide further information at this time. However, the patron of the school in question will be informed of the proposed location as soon as it is possible to do so.
