466. Mr. Molloy asked the Minister for Education if she has received an application for school transport for 15 children residing in the Rossroe/Cloonisle/ Tamnaghbawn area of County Galway  who attend Cashel national school, Connemara, County Galway; and if so, when a decision will be made on the application.
Minister for Education (Mrs. Hussey) Gemma Hussey
Minister for Education (Mrs. Hussey): My Department have received an application for the provision of a special transport service to Cashel national school from the Rossroe, Carramore, Tawnaghbawn and Cloonlee areas. In order that such a service be provided it would be necessary that there would be a sufficient number of eligible pupils in a distinct locality to ensure that a minimum of ten eligible children would be conveyed to school each day by the service.
The eligible pupils in question do not live in a distinct locality and, accordingly, I regret that it is not open to my Department to provide a special service for them.
