Written Answers. - School Accommodation.

Mr. Naughten asked the Minister for Education and Science if an application will be approved for funding for a school (details supplied) in County Roscommon; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [20507/06]

  Ms Hanafin: The school to which the Deputy refers was offered devolved funding earlier this year under my Department’s Small Schools Scheme. However, the school indicated that the extent of additional accommodation which could be provided under this scheme would not be sufficient to meet its long term needs. In the circumstances, my Department decided to carry out a review of the schools long term projected enrolment. This exercise is nearing completion and my Department will be in touch with the school authority shortly in relation to the outcome.
