Gaelscoil Bhaile Munna development ‘thanks to parents and teachers’ – Reilly

18 May, 2016

Local Councillor Noeleen Reilly has welcomed the news that building is to commence on the new school for Gaelscoil Bhaile Munna over the summer months.

Speaking from Ballymun today, Cllr Reilly said:

“Parents have been waiting a long time for a new school in Ballymun. Children and Teachers have been operating in sub-standard conditions for decades.  The prefabs were supposed to be a short term measure but like many schools across the state they became a permanent fixture.

“Construction on the new school was due to commence in 2014 and Students were due to be moved to the Youth reach centre on Ballymun Rd, but because of a planning objection that was unable to proceed.

“Finally, a Letter of Intent was sent to the preferred Tender on 10th May 2016.

“I want to congratulate parents and teachers for all the work they have done in securing the new building

“The new school will include a number of new classrooms, a community hall which can benefit the entire community and better parking facilities.

“Parents and Children alike are delighted by the new school development.  Children deserve the opportunity to be educated in the best possible conditions and to date that had not been happening.

“Dublin City Council recently provided a School warden for the School and I would ask them to continue the traffic safety measures by providing a pedestrian crossing.”
