I welcome the commencement of construction of the extension and refurbishment of Craughwell National School this month. The successful contractor is Coolsivna Construction Ltd, from Mountbellew,
“This project has been on the agenda many years. I expect the construction work to be completed in two phases over 18 months and will deliver modern educational facilities for Craughwell”.
“The much-needed school extension includes a two-story extension of 1,628 Square metres to the existing school to replace the prefab classrooms”.
“The extension includes eight new classrooms, a general-purpose sports hall, a multipurpose room, administration offices, principal’s office, access lift, toilets, carpark and a drop off and pick up area. It also includes the refurbishment of the existing school building”.
“This project is long awaited by the community in Craughwell, and I look forward to the completion of the project after a protracted process. I commend the school staff, school principal and Board of Management for their dedication and for never giving up on this project. I thank the parents and the pupils past and present for their patience”.
