Deputy Michael Lowry has today welcomed the fact that a number of schools building projects in North Tipperary are earmarked to progress in the coming year.

In particular Deputy Lowry has welcomed the announcement that the school projects currently underway in Borrisokane Community College, The Ursuline Thurles, Scoil Ruain Killenaule and Nenagh Vocational School will continue to progress to the benefit of all pupils, teachers and staff.

“The works in the above schools are progressed to an advanced stage and I am pleased to confirm that they will continue to advance in the coming year. During my time in the last administration I fought hard to ensure that these projects were given priority status in the Government. I am now pleased to see the benefit of this being realised.”

“Additionally the progression of the Silvermines N.S. new school development is very welcome.”

“That said I have some concerns about the 5 year plan as set out by Minister Quinn. Having examined these projects it seems that there will be a limited amount of investment in North Tipperary schools in the coming years. Additionally a number of key, much needed projects seem to be missing from this plan. I am therefore in contact with the Minister at present to determine the status of these excluded projects.”
