Education Minister expected to be met by protesters at Finn Valley College opening

Education Minister Ruari Quinn is in Donegal today for a series of engagements.

He begins this morning with a visit to St. Eunan’s School in Raphoe, before the official opening of the new Finn Valley College in Stranorlar.

Minister Quinn will also open the extension at Scoil Phadraig, Drumkeen, before travelling to Letterkenny.

When he arrives in Letterkenny, he will visit the Educate Together School, Scoil Mhuire Gan Smal, and the Letterkenny Youth Reach Centre, before ending the day at Letterkenny Institute of Technology.

It's anticipated that parents and others will protest outside the new Finn Valley College following Ruari Quinn's refusal to meet the Finn Valley School Transport Group.

Fianna Fail Councillor Patrick Mc Gowan is Chairperson of the Board of Management there. He says he will raise the group's concerns with the minister............
