A spokesperson for the Department of Education & Skills told the ‘Leinster Express’, “For reasons of commercial sensitivity, the Department does not comment on the projected cost of individual projects which have not yet progressed to tender.”

Deputy Charlie Flanagan is looking forward to seeing work begin on the new school developments over the winter months.
