Update on St. Laurence O’Toole’s Junior Schools amalgamation project

26th January, 2021

As a T.D. for the North Wall and member of Government for the last number of years, I have worked to improve the learning environment for students of both the St. Laurence O’Toole’s Junior Boys and Girls schools. This commitment resulted in works in beginning in late 2019 to deliver a refurbished St. Laurence O’Toole’s National School.


This project will see the construction of a two-storey extension to include new entrance, link corridor, a library and GP room. Minor demolition work plus refurbishment of the existing building to provide accommodation for a 10-classroom school.


Construction work is now underway and progressing well. Due to the ongoing pandemic, it is now envisaged that the newly refurbished school will be re-open in April 2022. Across the coming months, I will work to keep you updated of further progress in delivering new and improving facilities in which  North Wall children to learn.
