Donegal school omitted from government priority list despite meeting criteria – Pringle

Gaelscoil 4 masters

A Donegal TD is questioning the accuracy of Department of Education priority lists after a Donegal school failed to show up on a list of schools identified as having pre-fab classrooms and no permanent structure.

Deputy Thomas Pringle asked for the list in the context of determining the status of Gaelscoil na gCeithre Máistrí in Donegal Town.

However, when he received the list, the school wasn't on it, evenn though it is accomodated in four pre-fabs. The only Donegal school on the list was Educate Together in Letterkenny, which is getting a new building.

Deputy Pringle is demanding that the department urgently revise the list, and says this is a worrying sign that the Government is unaware of the full extent of pre-fab schooling in Donegal......
