EDUCATION Minister Norma Foley has given initial approval for a new 650 pupil secondary school building at Ardscoil Mhuire in Corbally.
The new school, which will have two special education needs classrooms, will be on a green field site adjacent to existing school. Following ministerial approval, work can begin immediately on advancing the project to the design stage.
Welcoming the announcement, Limerick Fine Gael TD Kieran O’Donnell said it was great to see Ardscoil Mhuire, an institution that had been providing secondary education in Limerick for decades, being approved for such a much needed new school building.
“I wish to commend the principal, Bríd Herbert, board of Management, pupils and parents on their work in advancing this school building project and look forward to working with them on progressing it to the next stages,” he added.
