PLANS for the development of a new Gaelscoil Uí Choimin building in Kilrush, have been given the go ahead.

Funding has been secured for the project and it involves the construction of a new school building consisting of new four classroom primary school and all associated site works.

Minister for Education, Norma Foley (FF) confirmed in Dáil Éireann this week the long awaited news regarding the construction of a new building for the Kilrush school. “The execution of a Service Level Agreement (SLA) between the Department of Education and the Limerick Clare Education and Training Board (LCETB) is currently being arranged”.

Once the SLA is in place, the LCETB “will procure a design team for the project to design the buildings, obtain the necessary statutory planning permissions, and progress the project to tender and construction in due course,” Minister Foley stated.

Agreement on the SLA between the Department and LCETB needs to be made quickly, Clare TD Joe Carey (FG) maintained. “This will enable a design team to be appointed, which will lead to planning permission being sought, the project moving to tender and construction phases thereafter”.
