[24759/04]

Minister for Education and Science (Ms Hanafin): Information on Mary Hanafin  Zoom on Mary Hanafin  Agreement has been reached with the management authorities of the two schools referred to by the Deputy to develop a single post-primary school in the centre. My officials are nearing completion of a review of all projects which did not proceed to construction as part of the 2004 school building programme with a view to including them as part of a multi-annual programme from 2005. The accommodation needs of the schools referred to arising from the amalgamation are being considered in this regard. I expect to provide details of this multi-annual programme before the end of the current year.

My officials have been in contact with the school authorities as required to progress the detailed preliminary work necessary to facilitate this large scale building project.
