8 more schools across Tipperary will be able to undertake school improvements following the announcement of the Summer Work’s Scheme.
Environment Minister Alan Kelly stated “I am delighted that these schools in Tipperary will benefit from the scheme this year. Of the €80 million announced for the multi-annual Summer Works Scheme (2016-2017), €30 million is now being allocated for vital gas works and electrical upgrades in schools. The majority of works will be carried out in schools over the summer months, so as to minimise disruption to students, teachers and other staff member.”
Gortnahoe National School and St Josephs in Toomevara will have electrical works carried out while gas works will be completed this summer at Scoil Cormaic in Cashel, Killenaule National School, Scoil Iosagain in Upperchurch and St Ailbe’s National School in Emly.
Electrical works are earmarked for two second level schools in County Tipperary – Colaiste Mhuire in Thurles and Colaiste Dun Iascaigh in Cahir.
This is positive news for schools involved.
