Mr. Gilmore Mr. Gilmore
200. Mr. Gilmore asked the Minister for Education, in view of the inadequate facilities for physical education at Pobal Scoil Na Rosann, Dungloe, County Donegal, the progress, if any, which has been made with regard to the provision of a physical education hall.
Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach) Niamh Bhreathnach
Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): Because of the financial constraints which have existed for a number of years it has not yet been possible to make funding available for the provision  of physical education facilities at Pobal Scoil na Rosann, Dungloe, Co. Donegal.
Due to demands on the capital resources available, priority has been given for some time to the provision of essential teaching spaces. However, physical education facilities are provided in all major new school developments.
The provision of indoor sports accommodation in schools, in the form of a general purpose area at primary level and a hall at second level will resume as soon as pressure on available resources for urgent classroom accommodation has eased. In the meantime, additional emphasis is being placed on the adjacent siting and common use of school and community recreational facilities and schools should make maximum use of other sports facilities in their area.
