A new gaelscoil for Sandymount/Ringsend in 2014 – Information Evening, June 5th 2013

May 30, 2013

The Department of Education and Skills has announced that a new primary school is to open in the Sandymount/Ringsend area in September 2014. A campaign is underway to have the new school designated as a gaelscoil; there is no Irish-medium primary school in the area, and there is huge demand for places in the Irish-medium schools in the surrounding areas. The new school’s prospective patron, AN FORAS PÁTRÚNACHTA, along with GAELSCOILEANNA TEO., the coordinating body for Irish-medium schools, has organised an information evening on June 5th in the Ringsend & Irishtown Community Centre at 7pm. The event is open to the public and will focus on the benefits of Irish-medium education for all children.

This is a great opportunity for the community to get involved and take ownership of what will be a wonderful resource for the area for generations of children to come and to create a vibrant, successful school that they can feel very proud of. We would be delighted to meet you should you be interested in getting involved in the campaign to have a new gaelscoil established in the area.

Further information on the public event is available from  Clare on 01 8535193 or clare@gaelscoileanna.ie.
