 Mr. Collins asked the Minister for Education and Science the position in relation to a school (details supplied) in County Limerick which has applied for funding of €50,000 to provide a replacement playground, lost due to a necessary building extension to the school. [10665/07]
Ms Hanafin Ms Hanafin
Ms Hanafin:The school to which the Deputy refers made an application under the summer works scheme 2007 for provision of a hardcourt play area. On 8 January last, I announced details of the schools to receive funding to improve facilities under that scheme.
Under the published prioritisation criteria governing the scheme, external environment projects fall into category ten. However, due to the volume of applications received it was not possible to allocate funding to all proposed projects. The Department has received an appeal on this decision from school authorities which will be considered further.
