Dáil Éireann Debate
Mr. Barry: asked the Minister for Education if she has sanctioned an extension to Ballinora National School, County Cork; when work will commence on the extension; and if it will be finished for the commencement of the new school year in September, 1989.
Minister for Education (Mrs. O'Rourke): I have agreed that the extension to Ballinora National School, County Cork should proceed on a modified basis this year. Tender documents for the project have been completed and the question of invitation of tenders now arises for consideration. A decision in the matter will be/conveyed to the school authorities as early as possible. It is not possible to say at this stage when building works will commence or when the project will be completed.
Mr. Sherlock: asked the Minister for Education the plans she has to remedy serious deficiencies in facilities at Baltydaniel National School, Mallow, County Cork; and if she will outline her Department's long term plans for the school.
Minister for Education (Mrs. O'Rourke): My Department are considering the question of the replacement of the existing accommodation at Baltydaniel  National School, County Cork by a new school building and a decision will be conveyed to the school authorities as soon as possible. Meanwhile, my Department's professional advisers are examining the question of what works should be carried out to the school building to ameliorate existing conditions.
