School Building Projects

School building projects is in top gear in Ireland currently, the government really has stepped up to the mark by allocating funds to ensure that children in Ireland finally receive an education in a building built with solid foundations and not a pre fabricated make shift room.

Look at the recent news for schools in galway – 

The funding, which was announced today by the Minister for Education, Jan O’Sullivan, will see new facilities for seven Galway schools in 2016, four in 2017, and eight in 2018. Under the programme, the primary schools for Renmore, Claregalway, Oranmore, Moycullen, and Lackagh, which have been operating out of “substandard prefabs”, according to Labour Galway West TD Derek Nolan, will have proper facilities built.


Also getting new school buildings will be Knocknacarra Educate Together, Galway Steiner School, St Annin’s in Roscahill, and Rosedale Special School, which works with children with severe to profound intellectual disabilities. “These new facilities will offer a better environment for both children and staff,” said Dep Nolan.


After many years in the pipeline, St Joseph’s Secondary School (aka ‘The Bish’ ) will also be provided with a new school building and better access to sporting facilities. “The Bish is simply too large for its current Nuns Island site and needs a new home,” said Dep Nolan. “I look forward to supporting them by bringing their project forward.”


Funding is also available for the new Our Lady’s Secondary School in the city centre. This school was formed following the merger of the both The Mercy and Presentation secondary schools. Clifden Community College has similarly been funded with similar smaller projects all over Galway.


Thirty schools across the city and county, including schools in Renmore, Claregalway, Oranmore, Moycullen, and Lackagh, are to get new buildings, while others are to be significantly renovated, under the Government’s Five Year Schools Building Programme.
