Progress has been made on the development on a new Gaelscoil campus in Athenry.
Galway East TD Sean Canney said that the Department of Education has confirmed to him that a design team has been appointed for the project.
“The project includes the delivery of two new schools consisting of a national school at the site of the former Clarin College”.
The gaelscoil development has been devolved to the leadership of the Galway & Roscommon Education and Training Board.
Once the design team has finished their work, the next step will be for a planning application to be made in regards the school.
“This project is the final piece in the jigsaw for the delivery of modern facilities with the Presentation College and Clarin College both now complete and operational, representing a capital investment in excess of €40 million for Athenry and the catchment”.
