Ms Hanafin: I propose to take Questions Nos. 542 and 591 together.
The school referred to by the Deputy has made an application for a new school building. In considering this application, officials in school planning section are carrying out a review of all-Irish provision at primary level in the Ballymun area. This review will take into account current and future demographics, planned housing developments and the likely demand for all-Irish primary education in the area into the future. It will also take account of the most cost effective manner in which this can be delivered. The outcome of this review, which will be carried out as quickly as possible, will inform a decision on the school’s application for capital grant aid.
