Coláiste Ráithín on East Coast FM

May 23, 2012

On Tuesday 22nd May 2012 after the 11o’clock news, The Morning Show with Declan Meehan, on East Coast FM, is revisiting the situation regarding Coláiste Ráithín’s accommodation.

Cairde Ráithín/Coláiste Ráithín Parent’s Association understands that Michael Lawlor, Chairman, Co. Wicklow VEC and also Coláiste Ráithín Board Member, will be on the show, together with Paul Moore, Spokesperson, Cairde Ráithín, to discuss recent developments concerning the re-location of the Coláiste into a new school building.  This interview follows on from a recent programme by Declan Meehan with Bray Town Councillor Mick Glynn (also a Coláiste Ráithín Board Member) and Paul Moore on Monday 30th of April last.   Councillor Glynn had then anticipated that there would be positive developments arising from a scheduled meeting between Wicklow VEC and the Department of Education and Skills two days later on the 2nd May.  This turned out not to be the case, as the Department turned down Wicklow VEC’s request to fund services and an access road into the old Bray Golf Club Site in order to enable Coláiste Ráithín to be located there.

Cairde Ráithín expect the discussion will refer to the recent correspondence between the Minister for Education and Bray Town Councillor John Brady and also the correspondence between the Minister’s Private Secretary with Coláiste Ráithín parent Art O’Laoghaire, both letters confirming this position in regard to the old Golf Club site.
