Dáil Eireann Debate
Mr. Horgan: asked the Minister for Education if he has received a request from the parents of children who were formerly attending Newtown national school, County Galway, and have not accepted the decision to transfer to Moycullen national school, for a meeting with him; and if he will accede to this request.
Minister for Education (Mr. Wilson): In my reply to Question No. 442 on 11 October 1978 I mentioned that I met a deputation of parents from the Newtown area in June 1978 who put before me their views on the retention of their school.
Mr. Horgan: asked the Minister for Education if he will carry out an enumeration of the population of primary school age in the townlands formerly served by Newtown national school, County Galway, with a view to establishing the extent of the need for a primary school in the area, and in particular the needs of Irish-speaking parents; if he will take appropriate action  to meet these needs; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
