Sinn Féin welcome boost for Local Area as planning for Gaelscoil

Sinn Fein representative in Ballymun Noeleen Reilly has welcomed further details of the new permanent school buildings to be built for Gaelscoil Bhalla Munna describing it as a major boost for the area.

“The students were in prefabs for the last 17years and I congratulate the parents and the Board of management for their work in securing a Government commitment to provide permanent school buildings. This will be a major boost to the local community and to the growth of the Irish language in areas like Ballymun”

“The new school will cater for 183 Pupils in 12 Classrooms in a two storey building which will also have a library and a large assembly area.”

Ms Reilly welcomed the fact that the School height is in keeping with height of Houses and Apartments in area and that the development will include a new Increased Car Park for Staff and Visitors which should alleviate any possible traffic management issues.

“Given that the area is one of heavy traffic it is imperative that a traffic warden is provided for the area to ensure the safety of children going to and from school”.
