by Deputy Darragh O'Brien
for WRITTEN ANSWER on 18/10/2016
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, the project to which he refers was announced as part of the Six Year Capital Programme last year. The project is listed to proceed to tender and construction in 2017.
Officials in my Department are working closely with officials from Fingal County Council under the memorandum of understanding in relation to the identification and acquisition of a suitable permanent location for the Gaelscoil. A suitable site has been identified and discussions are ongoing with the Council in relation to the provision of access and services. Due to commercial sensitivities relating to site acquisitions generally I am not in a position to provide further details at this time.
Once a suitable site has been acquired my Department will be in a position to progress the project concerned into the architectural planning process
