Kearney welcomes funding for Gaelscoil Éanna.
Sinn Féin National chairperson and candidate in the forthcoming Assembly election Declan Kearney has welcomed the announcement by the department of education funding for Gaelscoil Éanna.
Speaking today Mr Kearney said:
“The news of this investment is a huge boost for Gaelscoil Éanna and Irish medium Education in South Antrim area. It follows many years of hard work by those involved in the school project; the teachers, parents, families and their supporters.
“Despite Gaelscoil Éanna only opening 9 years ago it has flourished through hard work, a reputation for educational excellence, and an amazing community ethos. The size of this latest investment vindicates the commitment of local parents who have chosen to send their children to the school.
“The funding approved will create a purpose built facility allowing the school to cater for increasing demand and to grow for the future.
“I warmly congratulate the school management and board of governors on achieving this huge next step, and commend Minister John O’Dowd's decision to approve the funding.”
