Finn Valley College to get a new school building

After a campaign of over 20 years, Finn Valley College is to get a new school building.

Tanaiste and Education Minister Mary Coughlan has announced this morning that a contractor for the new school has been approved, and building work should start shortly.

The new school will have the capacity to cater for 325 students and 35 staff.

The Tanaiste says today's news has been a long time coming, but the new school can now be built.
