A PRESS release from the Department of Education today shows that there are currently 13 school building projects in construction or at an advanced stage of planning in Clare.
New school buildings are being provided at Ennistymon Community School, Ennistymon National School and Gaelscoil Donncha Rua in Shannon. There are extensions also on the way at ten locations around the county, at schools in Cratloe, Boston, Doolin, Ennis, Newmarket on Fergus, Lissycasey, Killaloe and Scariff.
€4.4 billion is to be spent on improving school infrastructure by 2025 and Education Minister Norma Foley said, “Advance planning and a strong rollout of school building projects is crucial to support the school system and ensure alignment with the government’s Housing for All plan. This significant investment through the NDP allows us to move forward with certainty on our ambitious plans and deliver high quality building projects, with a real focus on sustainability, for school communities across Ireland.”
