After 24 years the Department of Education has approved the tendering process for Gaelscoil Chluain Meala with a target date for the commencement of construction of the second quarter of 2019.
Tenders will issue in the next few weeks for the completion of a panel of suitably qualified builders to carry out the work.
On the completion of this list, tender documents for the construction of the school will issue to the qualified contractors.
Assessment of tenders will follow with a target date for commencement of construction at the second quarter of 2019.
The construction work involves, what is effectively a new school at the rear, in the Old County Council Machinery yard and the refurbishment of the existing building.
The school which opened its doors in September 1994 has gone from strength to strength buts its accommodation is substandard, overcrowded and not fit for purpose.
This is a very welcome development and great credit is due to the whole school community at Gaelscoil Chluain Meala, parents, pupils, teachers and Board of Management. Mar a deireann an seanfhocal, “Ní neart go cur le chéile.”

The 6th of October is ‘National Day of Voter Registration’ and the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) are running a campaign across 24 student campuses in Ireland tomorrow to enable students to register to vote.
This Government backtracked on a pre-election pledge to students and increased college registration fees, up 50%. They have left students sleeping on couches because of the accommodation crisis, have slashed student grants and have cut allowances to those on apprenticeships.
At a time when people have been left in very difficult situations due to cuts and increased fees, increased rents etc., students have been left with poor counselling services again as a result of further cuts.
Register to vote, and use it to ensure people you can trust to fight for you can. #RockTheRegister
