The planned works will transform St. Senan’s into a 24-classroom school with 13 special educational teaching rooms and a four-classroom special educational needs base.

“I regularly meet with Minister for Education, Norma Foley,” said Minister Browne.

“I have stressed to the minister the importance of increased school places in the Enniscorthy area and it's very welcome that her department has approved this project to move to the construction stage of the process,” he added.

When completed the works will deliver a brand new two-story extension and refurbishment to the school.
