IT'S BEEN years in the planning, but at last it's all systems go for a new 900-pupil Loreto Girls Secondary School to be built on the outskirts of Wexford.
The school plans have been approved without objection, with work due begin by next summer.
Loreto principal Billy O'Shea said he was both delighted for Wexford's future generations and for the town which will reap a jobs and economic benefit from the development.
'I hope it is a sign of better things ahead in the county and the country,' said Mr O'Shea
The 10.3 acre greenfield site where the school is to be built is on the southern edge of the town, just off the Duncannon Road at Ballynagee.
