Added June 13th, 2018
Limerick TD and local Minister, Patrick O’Donovan has said he is delighted with the news that a contractor has been appointed for the construction of the new secondary school in Croom, and that work will commence shortly.
“Today I have been informed that MMD Construction have been appointed to construct the new replacement second level school for Colaiste Chiarain in Croom. Over the last few years I, together with my colleague Cllr Stephen Keary, have worked tirelessly with; the Minister for Education, the Education and Training Board, parents representatives and others to try to secure this development for Croom. During that time there has been many disappointments and setbacks. However we stuck at it because we wanted to be able to deliver a new state of the art school for Croom. And today the hard work has paid off. This is great news for Croom and the surrounding areas, but it is particularly good news for the students, parents and staff who will have the pleasure of being part of a new school.”
“This new school for Croom will be built to accommodate 800 students when it is finished. It is just one of a number of new school projects that we have and are delivering since we entered Government. Across the county in places like Doon, Abbeyfeale, Kilmallock and Newcastle West we have made substantial investments in our second level schools. Other secondary schools have also received funding for refurbishment and we have also provided significant resources for primary schools across Limerick including new schools, extensions and refurbishments.”
“I am thrilled with today’s news. I look forward to the commencement date of the construction which I understand will be in the coming weeks and to the start of a new chapter in the story of second level education in Croom.”
