Agreement to co-locate Rush schools welcomed

A local Fianna Fáil TD has welcomed agreement in principle for two new schools in Rush, and has called for 'new energy' to be applied to bring about their construction.

Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Housing, Darragh O'Brien said: 'I am delighted to see that at last an agreement in principle has been reached on the proposed acquisition of a site that will accommodate St Joseph's Secondary School and Gaelscoil Ros, and that this acquisition is currently progressing through the conveyancing stage.

'There have been unacceptable delays with the delivery of both of these schools for Rush, and I know that families are very frustrated. It is long past time that we saw some real movement.'

Deputy O'Brien said he wished to commend both schools, their principals and boards of managements for the 'trojan' work they had done for the schools to date, and praised the 'patience' that both schools had shown. The Fianna Fáil Deputy said he wished to assure the schools of the 'continued support of the Fianna Fáil team in Dublin Fingal to get these projects over the line.'
