Naughten welcomes appointment of contractor for Coláiste Chiaráin


Independent TD Denis Naughten has welcomed the appointment of a contractor to build the new second level school, Coláiste Chiaráin, at Summerhill, Athlone, Co. Roscommon.

  The Department of Education has now appointed JJ Rhatigan for what is a major building project which will see a completely new school designed to cater for up to 1,000 pupils from south Roscommon and the west side of Athlone.

  The new school will have 37 classrooms along with science laboratories, home economics room and a large PE hall.

  Denis Naughten said: “With the new school to be constructed on a 28-acre site, there is ample room for the development of sporting and other facilities, which will not only benefit the pupils of Coláiste Chiaráin but also the wider community”.
