Local Fine Gael politicians have welcomed the news that funding has been approved for roof works at Clooncagh National School in Strokestown.
Senator Frank Feighan said: “I am pleased that the Department of Education has approved this funding and these works will proceed once the tendering process has been completed.
“The Department’s School Building Unit issued a detailed letter to the school informing the school of the amount of grant-aid sanctioned,” he said.
Senator Maura Hopkins said: “I am delighted to see this application getting a positive response. I will continue to work with Minister Joe McHugh to ensure that the funds are made available to the school as soon as possible and to allow them to have these works completed in a timely manner”.
