Secondary school closed due to 'safety risk' as gardai confirm they're investigating
A decision was made at the eleventh hour for a secondary school not to open today due to a "safety risk assessment."
Parents and staff were informed last night that Scoil Dara in Kilcock wouldn't open today.
They posted a statement on their website, which said: "Following a meeting of the Board of Management of Scoil Dara late this evening, It has been decided to close the school to students tomorrow Tuesday December 5th pending a safety risk assessment.
"Sincere apologies for the late notice and inconvenience."
It is unclear what the safety issue is but gardai confirmed they are investigating the matter.
A garda spokesman told Independent.ie: "We are investigating a matter that has been brought to our attention, in a school in Kildare, investigations are ongoing."
Independent.ie has contacted Scoil Dara for further comment.
