Three Galway East schools have been given the green light for temporary accommodation and emergency works.
Approval from the Department of Education has been given to Gaelscoil Riada, Athenry, for three temporary mainstream classrooms, while funding has been granted by the Department for emergency roof works at both Gort National School and Gort Community School.
“I am delighted that these approvals have been given.
“The additional classrooms at Gaelscoil Riada are a temporary measure until the primary and secondary Gaescoils are in a position to combine on the existing site of Clarin College, while the emergency works for Gort National School and Gort Community Schools are urgently needed.
I want to congratulate the students, parents, principals, staff and Boards of Management on these awards.
I also want to thank my colleague, the Minister for Education Joe McHugh TD for supporting the schools’ applications.
