Added September 3rd, 2018
Limerick TD and Minister, Patrick O’Donovan has announced that St. Fergus’ National School in Glin has been approved €50,000 in funding under the CLÁR programme. This funding will go towards the construction of a new carpark and drop off area on the school grounds and adjacent to the public road. This will allow parents to safely drop off and pick up their children in the mornings and the evenings.
“I worked very closely with local Councillor John Sheahan, the School Principal, Board of Management and Minister Michael Ring in order to get this project approved. This is a very welcome announcement for the school, pupils and the local community, as it will allow for safer travel to and from the school. I am very proud to be able to deliver this for Glin.”
“Over the last number of years the Government have invested significant sums of money in a number of rural development schemes. One of these is the CLÁR Programme which supports communities under a range of different headings. During that time I have worked closely with my colleague Minister Michael Ring, to secure the maximum amount of funding for County Limerick. This project in Glin joins a long list of successful applications that have been awarded funding from the Department.”
