'Schools to close again tomorrow' - Mullan

16 October, 2017 - by Karen Mullan




All schools in Ireland have been advised  to close again tomorrow, Sinn Féin Education Spokesperson Karen Mullan has said.

The Foyle MLA commented: "Following a similar decision taken in the South, the Department of Education have confirmed to me that all schools in the North have now been issued with advice to remain closed again tomorrow.

"Although the weather is expected to have improved by then, there is a concern that power shortages and potential damage to buildings and transport networks could impact on accessibility and safety tomorrow.

"In those circumstances it is sensible to be cautious and to take the decision as early as possible to allow parents to make necessary arrangements."
