 94.  Deputy Simon Harris Information on Simon Harris Zoom on Simon Harris  asked the Minister for Education and Skills Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn  when a school (details supplied) will be provided with new school accommodation; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [19605/12]

Minister for Education and Skills (Deputy Ruairí Quinn): Information on Ruairí Quinn Zoom on Ruairí Quinn I can confirm that the school referred to by the Deputy has an application with my Department for capital funding for a major school project. Information in respect of the current status of all assessed applications for major capital works, including this project, is available on the Department’s website at

In view of the need to ensure that every child has access to a school place, the delivery of major school projects required to meet demographic demand will be the main focus for capital investment in the coming years. In the context of the need to prioritise available funding for the provision of additional school accommodation, it is not possible therefore to give an indicative timeframe for the progression of this school project at this time.

Question No. 95 answered with Question No. 52.
