Positive update on a new secondary school for Kildare.

The Department of Education have informed me that the sale is now closed for the acquisition of circa 8 acre site at ‘Magee Barrack’s’ in Kildare Town.
This 8 acre site is to facilitate the replacement and expansion of the existing Curragh PPS and cater for the increased demographic growth at post-primary level that is due to occur in the Kildare South region over the coming years.
The shortage of secondary school places in Kildare South has been an ongoing issue for years, which I highlighted with the Minister for Education and in the Dáil chamber numerous times. Glad to see there is finally some positive progress and hopefully this will help to alleviate some of the pressure.
Thanks to all who have advocated so convincingly for this project to proceed.
