Waiting for a new school

April 30, 2012

A chara, – Today, April 30th, the Minister for Education, Ruairí Quinn, opens a fantastic, brand new, secondary school facility in Wicklow town, for which we congratulate all concerned.

But, perhaps, he can take a few moments and ponder with Wicklow VEC the plight of its poor relation, Coláiste Ráithín in Bray. Coláiste Ráithín was to have a new school built at the same time as Wicklow town’s, but now (17 years after a new school building was first sanctioned), with its proposed site in Nama, Coláiste Ráithín is still waiting (like Godot), with no sign of any solution, at all, in sight.

Is this, we wonder, the first case of being NAA-MAD while minding our own business? We will go on! – Is mise,
