Summer Works Scheme – Brendan Smith

See the source image

I welcome the announcement by the Department of Education and Skills of a number of approvals for upgrading works at schools under the Summer Works Scheme.

This Scheme enables essential small-scale building works to be carried out and the successful applications in Co. Cavan and Co. Monaghan are:


Kilnaleck National School

Bailieboro Model National School

Farnham National School

Billis National School

Darley National School

Killygarry National School

Scoil Bhride, Mountnugent

Kildallon National School

St Felim’s National School,  Cavan Town

Scoil Mhuire, Lacken

Scoil Naomh Padraig, Lisboduff

Drumkilly National School

Kill National School


Scoil Naomh Eanna

Corgreagh National School

Drumgossett NS

S N Blaithin Iosa

Scoil Mhuire BNS

St Patrick’s NS

SN Cholmcille

St Patrick’s National School, Killybrone

Scoil Bride

Edenmore NS

St Louis Secondary School

A number of other worthy applications from other schools throughout both counties were not successful and I appeal to the Minister to provide more funding for this Scheme, which gives good value for money, and have more applications approved.  A number of schools whose applications have not been successful need to have essential repairs and upgrading works undertaken.
