Dáil Eireann Debate
647. Deputy Bernard J. Durkan asked the Minister for Education and Science if the full requirement in terms of second level school places has been met or is expected to be met in the Leixlip, Celbridge, Maynooth, Kilcock, M4 or N4 corridor area; if consideration has been given or will be given to further second level schools in the area; if this includes an all Irish school; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [37507/09]
Minister for Education and Science (Deputy Batt O’Keeffe): The Forward Planning Section of my Department is in the process of carrying out detailed analysis of over 40 locations of highest population growth in order to identify the school accommodation requirements up to and including the school year 2014/2015.
When the required reports have been completed for these initial areas selected the Forward Planning Section will continue to work on preparing reports on a priority basis for the remainder of the country.
Overall post-primary accommodation requirements in Leixlip, Celbridge, Maynooth, Kilcock, M4 or N4 corridor area, and any subsequent issues which may arise, such as the need for a new Irish language post-primary school will be considered in this regard.
