Gaelscoil Bharra was included in the Government’s five year school building programme in 2012. Since then, I have been liaising with the Department, the School Board of Management and parents of children who attend the Gaelscoil to ensure that this commitment becomes a reality. The Department of Education Design Team overseeing this project was finalising architectural plans and revised costs for the building project across the past number of weeks. Following completion of this work, tenders for the construction phase of the project will be sought. I will work directly with the school to ensure that building begins as soon as possible.
