[1501] Minister for Education (Ms Bhreathnach): The building project at Ballinagh national school is at an advanced stage of architectural planning. I understand the project architect is currently preparing the tender documentation. Ballinagh is one of a number of urgent projects I am considering for funding in the 1997 building programme. I will take a decision in the matter very shortly and it will be communicated to the school management.
