Senator Maria Byrne has today welcomed the progress on providing a new building for Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh.
Senator Maria Byrne along with Principal Donncha Ó Treasaigh, staff and students of Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh and members of the Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh Board of Management visited the Clare St site on Friday January 18th.
Senator Byrne said: “As chairperson of the Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh Board of Management, I am very pleased that O’Kelly Bros Demolition are currently on the Clare Street site clearing the way for the new school. I hope that this process can now progress rapidly and that the school’s future students can access top quality education in a modern and built for purpose school at the new location in Clare Street.”
“I want to compliment Thompson Architects for the unique design which will be submitted to Limerick City & County Council shortly for planning permission”
“Gaelcholáiste Luimnigh has been providing high quality education at their building at Sir Harry’s Mall since 2006 but the success of the school has meant they have outgrown their current location”
“I look forward to the school continuing its good work in the years ahead”
“As the population of Limerick expands, I will work with my colleague Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh TD to ensure that this Government continues to deliver for local students and their families.”
Principal Donncha Ó Treasaigh said:
“The Building unit in the Department of Education and Skills are very impressed by the unique design and I know that Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh TD is very much looking forward to seeing the design.”
“The stunning design will very much compliment the region and put Limerick on the map” Principal Ó Treasaigh concluded.
