Newly elected Deputy Mayor of Fingal County Council Patrick Nulty has welcomed the announcement today that a combined total 8 new primary and second level schools are to be provided in Fingal over the next six years.
These schools account for half of all the new schools being provided in theDublinarea over this period.
Speaking in reaction to today’s announcement Cllr. Nulty stated “I am delighted that the Dept. of Education has confirmed the provision of these new schools in a comprehensive way.
“Construction of new schools at Tyrellstown is already well under way and when built these schools will be a testament to the tenacity and unity parents,pupils and staff in Tyrellstown and Mulhuddart have shown”.
“New primary schools will also be established in Swords and Carpenterstown as well as new second levels forDublin15. For many years North and West Dublin was the poor relation in terms of schools provision but the plans for the next few years coupled with the new schools in Clonee and Ongar which have come on stream in recent years shows that progress is being made”.
Cllr. Nulty concluded by saying that he hoped “the Porterstown link road would be completed on time by the end of the year as it was a requirement for the provision of the permanent school building forLuttrelstownCommunity College”.
