The investment comes as the Government has set out its expenditure plans under the Project Ireland 2040 Plan
Two schools in Kilkenny are to receive additional accommodation and emergency works, Minister of State John Paul Phelan has said.
The schools are the School of the Holy Spirit on the Callan Road - which is to get additional buildings to accommodate an additional class and the provision of additional toilets - and Moneenroe National School in Castlecomer. The north Kilkenny school is to receive immediate roof works, Minister of State Phelan has confirmed.
“I’m delighted to confirm these works," said the local Fine Gael TD.
"This investment comes as the Government has set out its expenditure plans under the Project Ireland 2040 Plan, a blueprint which also allows for further school expansions and investments. Details will be confirmed over the coming weeks and months."
