 180.  Deputy Pat Breen Information on Pat Breen Zoom on Pat Breen  asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn  the position regarding an application in respect of a school (details supplied) in County Clare. [16150/12]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn The school to which the Deputy refers submitted an application for grant-aid towards ancillary office accommodation in the school. In view of the need to ensure that every child has access to a school place, priority is being given to applications for essential classroom accommodation to meet significant demographic needs. Accordingly my Department is not in a position to provide funding towards such projects at this time. This decision was advised to the school in December last. I also wish to advise the Deputy that my Department approved funding for the provision of a mainstream classroom to this school in June 2011 and is satisfied that the school has sufficient accommodation to cater for its current pupil needs.
