A new, multi-denominational primary school, Gaelscoil Lir, will open this September on Fortunestown Lane in Saggart. The new school was confirmed by the Department of Education and Skills to cater for the ongoing growth in population.
Speaking at the opening of registration, Cormac Mc Cashin, school manager said: “We are really excited about opening our new school. The benefits of immersion education are well documented and the demand for Irish-medium education is incredible. I look forward to working with a great team of teachers and offering our students the best education possible.”
“Our thanks to all of the parents in the area who supported our campaign. The fact that the new school will be the area’s first multi-denominational Gaelscoil makes this announcement even more important. This Gaelscoil is open to absolutely everyone. We welcome all pupils regardless of their background, religion or language of the home.”
“Planning permission for our state of the art building was approved late last year and we look forward to final approval from An Bord Pleanála. Work is already underway in relation to setting up a pre-school and an afterschool care service too.”
