Gaelscoil Uí Earcáin awarded Permanent Recognition

June 26, 2008

The Board of Management are delighted to announce that the Department of Education and Science have decided to award Gaelscoil Uí Earcáin permanent recognition. This good news was received yesterday over the phone, and the Department have indicated that confirmation in writing of this decision has been issued to the school.

This positive news ensures that the school has a strong standing into the future as we endeavour to promote Irish language education as the best choice for parents and children in Finglas.

Much work has gone into achieving permanent recognition, by parents and teachers, mainly on a voluntary basis, and by public representatives in the area. I welcome the opportunity to thank all of these for their commitment and loyalty to the school. I would like to say a special word of thanks on behalf of the Board of Management to Leah Ní Mhaoláin, our Principal, and to Pat Carey, T.D., for their dedicated work towards ensuring a strong future for Gaelscoil Uí Earcáin.

We have taken a very positive step in the right direction, and this progress confirms that the growth and development of the school will continue on an ongoing basis into the future with the goodwill of the community, the hard work of the parents and teachers, and the full support of the Patron and the Board of Management. We are also very grateful to the Department of Education and Science for their continuing cooperation with us on establishing and developing our school. I wish Gaelscoil Uí Earcáin every success always.
