Work On Ennistymon School Amalgamation To Begin Before Summer

The Minister of Education has confirmed that work on the amalgamation of secondary schools in Ennistymon is expected to begin by the second quarter of this year.

Responding to a parliamentary question from Clare Fianna Fail TD Cathal Crowe, Minister Norma Foley says the project is at an advanced stage of the tendering process and a preferred bidder has been identified.

The plan will see the existing schools of Ennistymon CBS, Ennistymon Vocational School and Scoil Mhuire come under one umbrella in a new three-storey building.


Local Councillor Shane Talty says the project moving a step closer will be welcome news for both parents and students in North Clare.
