Contractor to be appointed for Clarin College

I have received confirmation from the Department of Education that the successful contractor will be appointed shortly for the new Clarin College in Athenry. The tenders for the project have been submitted and are being evaluated by the design team. It is expected that the process will be concluded shortly.
The building is a rapid build project which means that the construction duration is very short and the school would be available in the quickest time possible. When completed the existing Clarin College site will then become available to build a new Gaelscoil campus, facilitating both a new primary Gaelscoil and a new secondary Gaelscoil.
I want to acknowledge the work of GRETB, Clarin College, staff, parents and students who have worked for many years towards getting this new modern educational facility for Athenry.
Investment in educational facilities in Athenry has been accelerated in the last two years and the new €20 million Presentation College is progressing and is due for completion in March 2019.
