Deputy Mary Hanafin: As you may be aware, a recently established Developing Areas Unit, within the School Planning and Building Unit of my Department is working on providing educational facilities in rapidly developing areas, including Dublin 15.
The projects to which the Deputy refers are at various stages of early architectural planning and submissions made to the Department are awaiting approval by the Department’s technical staff. All of these projects are being considered in the context of the work of the Developing Areas Unit and will be progressed in the context of the multi-annual School Building and Modernisation programme.
 As the various submissions are cleared by the technical staff of the Department the Developing Areas Unit will correspond directly with the school authorities as to further progression.
I will forward details on the specific status of each project directly to the Deputy’s office.
