2021 Summer Works Scheme

I welcome the approval by my colleague Norma Foley TD Minister for Education of more than one million euro for school projects in Cavan and Monaghan under the 2021 Summer Works Scheme.

10 schools in Cavan with grant aid of €855,298 will benefit and 4 schools in Monaghan have been approved with grant aid of €221,662 under the scheme.

The works approved are for roof repairs at primary level and toilet and other sanitary facilities at primary and post- primary levels.

This early approval enables schools to make the necessary preparations in good time for such improvement works to be undertaken during the summer of 2021.

Minister Foley has over the last few months allocated substantial funds to many schools to enable them make necessary accommodation adaptations due to the covid 19 pandemic.The 2021 Summer Works Scheme will enable these schools whose applications have been approved carry out necessary improvement works’, stated Brendan Smith TD.
