“This first round of funding will allow schools to
carry out small and medium scale building works
across three categories of projects - gas,
electrical and mechanical," said Cllr Farren.
"It was decided to assess the gas, mechanical and
electrical applications first so that boards of
management could have sufficient time to invite
tenders for the works and I would encourage local
contractors to submit a tender."

local children when they return to class in
"I commend Minister Quinn for finding the funding
for these vital projects and I look forward to the

enhancement works and which will be of further
benefit to our schools and our local economy," added
the Moville-based councillor.
