Christmas comes early for two Kilkenny schools about to undergo major makeovers
Two schools in county Kilkenny have received an early Christmas present after being approved for significant new developments.
Scoil Ruadhain in Tullaroan, with 95 pupils, has been given the go-ahead by the Department of Education for an extension consisting of a new classroom and new toilet.
The department also announced a new two classroom extension for the 190 pupil St Beacon’s National School in Mullinavat.
The announcement was made by Kilkenny TD and Government minister John Paul Phelan and comes at the end of a year which featured many positive developments for local schools. These include new school buildings in the city for Presentation Secondary, Colaiste Pobail Osrai, Kilkenny CBS and the Kilkenny ETB.
