Cavan/Monaghan Fianna Fáil TD Brendan Smith has welcomed the approval of Stage 2 (b) by the Minister for Education of a major building project for St. Clare’s National School, Cavan Town.
This approval enables the project to go to tender stage with all the architectural planning phase complete.
“I welcome this approval by Minister Foley as I had highlighted to her the need to have this new school building project progressed as soon as possible. There has been a very large increase in enrolment in this school over recent years and this new permanent accommodation will be very welcome.
I compliment the Principal, Alma Leonard and her staff colleagues, the Board of Management, Parents’ Association and the wider school community on their work in bringing this project to this stage.
I will continue to work with all involved to ensure that the project proceeds to construction as soon as possible”, stated Deputy Brendan Smith.
