South Tipperary Independent TD Mattie McGrath has once again expressed his major concern at the Governments plans to remove teachers from Small Schools and to force their amalgamation.
He will hold a Public Meeting to discuss the cuts to small schools this Thursday night 8th March at 8:30pm in Ballykisteen Hotel, Tipperary.
“Small Primary Schools are at the centre of life in their Rural Communities and it would be detrimental if these schools were to be closed. In order to ensure that rural communities are kept alive we must ensure that families have access to primary education in their community.”
