Deputy Batt O’Keeffe Deputy Batt O’Keeffe
Deputy Batt O’Keeffe: My Department have met with County Dublin Vocational Committee to discuss the matter of a site for the school in question  and is in ongoing communication in relation to acquiring a long term lease on their property as a potential site for the proposed school. The further progression of the building for the school in question will have to be considered in the context of the capital budget available to my Department for school buildings generally. In light of the many competing demands on the capital budget of my Department, it is not possible to give an indicative timeframe for the acquisition of the school site at this time.
