The Minister said: “I am immensely pleased to be here today on what is a historic day for Colaiste Chiarain and the town of Croom.
“For years I, together with my colleague Cllr Stephen Keary, have worked tirelessly with the Minister for Education and the Education and Training Board to secure this vital development for Croom.”
“During that time there has been many disappointments and setbacks. “While today feels like a new beginning it was a long and often challenging journey to get here. However, we persevered, because Croom and its young people deserve nothing less than this outstanding development.”
“Going forward I wish everyone involved in the construction phase of this mammoth project the very best of luck. Education is one of the most precious things in the world and to be part of something so important to this community is a great privilege.”
“It is just one of a number of new school projects the government are delivering on 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.”
