Plans for temporary prefab secondary school in Murrough

Plans have been submitted to the city council for the construction of a temporary secondary school at Murrough in Galway City.

The Department of Education is seeking planning permission to build two, 2-storey prefab buildings to serve as a temporary secondary school on the grounds of Grainach House on the Dublin Road.

The site is owned by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, which has granted the department permission to build there.

The department is only seeking temporary permission for this prefab structure, for a maximum of two years, on the same site as the existing Educate Together Secondary School.

“The Department of Education and Skills have appointed a Design Team to deliver a number of interim schools in specific areas,” the planning application states.

“These interim schools are intended to provide facilities until such a time as the permanent school for that area is constructed.”

“It is proposed to provide an interim school as a series of pre-fabricated buildings located at Galway Educate Together Secondary School”.

The two prefabs will together be used to accommodate 48 students and two teachers.

Flood Risk and Traffic & Transport Assessments were carried out and submitted with this application.

Galway City Council is due to make a decision on this planning application by June 1.
