New gaelscoil will support growth of Galway gaeltacht

April 4, 2017

The Gaeltacht Minister says the new Gaelscoil Mhic Amhlaigh building in Knocknacarra will support the future growth of the Galway gaeltacht.
Junior Minister Sean Kyne turned the sod on the site of the new school building at an event this afternoon.
A contractor was appointed late last year for the major building project, which had been subject to planning delays.
The new building will have 24 classrooms and capacity for up to 720 pupils, and will be located opposite the pitches at Millars Lane.
Minister Sean Kyne says the school will act as a hub for the development of the area’s Gaeltacht language plan.
Principal of Gaelscoil Mhic Amhlaigh Dairiona Nic Con Iomaire says the new school will be used by the whole community.
