Local Minister Darragh O’Brien TD has met with the Minister for Education, Norma Foley, to discuss the need for new school buildings, the lack of spaces for children in certain areas and the issues surrounding feeder schools in North County Dublin.
Minister O’Brien welcomed the opportunity to speak with his Cabinet colleague about the issues which constituents have raised with him.
Commenting he said, “The need for new school buildings, the lack of spaces for children in certain areas and the issues surrounding feeder schools are just some of the matters we discussed.
“I impressed upon the Minister the fact that we do have very unique educational needs here in North County Dublin. We have the youngest and fastest growing population here and securing the future education for our children is vitally important.
“I absolutely acknowledge that the impact of COVID-19 on the entire education system and the upheaval it has caused is the Minister’s priority. I also recognise the strides have been made since the Minister took office last June but it is important to keep the needs of our school children here in Fingal on the agenda and that is something I will continue to pursue,” he concluded.
