Parliamentary Question for the Minister for Education and Skills (Ruairi Quinn TD)
For WRITTEN ANSWER on 18th of June 2014
To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if he will provide an update on the progress being made in establishing two new secondary schools in the Carrigaline and south Cork suburbs; the criteria that will be used in determining the locations of both schools; if the location of each school will be influenced by the location of other schools with similar ethos, or the lack thereof; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
My Department is currently working with Cork County Council to secure sites to facilitate the schools referred to by the Deputy. When sites have been secured, my Department will be in contact with the respective patrons in relation to the locations of the individual schools. All relevant issues will be taken into account in this regard including the outcome of the patronage determination process for the new schools.
