Summer Works funding for 14 Clare schools

school14 County Clare schools have been approved funding under the Summer Works Scheme 2015.

12 Primary and 2 Post-Primary schools have successfully secured grants to undertake small scale works including structural improvements, window replacements, and external environment works such as the upgrading of school perimeter fences and walls.

The Clare schools allocated funds as part of a national programme, which sees €36 million invested in a further 545 schools, include Lisdoonvarna NS, St Annes NS in Corrovorin, Kildysart NS, Scoil Seanain Naofa in Clonlara, Scariff Community College and Shannon Comprehensive School (Windows), Saint Marys NS Lahinch and Tuamgraney NS (Structural Improvements), Miltown Malbay BNS, Cranny NS, Cahera NS, Ruan NS, Quin NS and Lakyle NS (External Environment).

Clare Fine Gael Senator Mulcahy says he expects additional Clare schools will be approved funding under a second round of funding in the coming weeks.

“I am delighted to see that this year’s Summer Works Scheme will benefit a total of 14 Clare primary and secondary schools. The investment will also create much-needed jobs in the local construction sector. I now urge schools to ensure that they get best value for money on prices for jobs in the more competitive construction market,” said Senator Mulcahy.

Clare T.D. Joe Carey said: “The schools to benefit include a mix of primary and post-primary and the funding will go towards things such as window repair and replacement, external improvements such as upgrading of school perimeter fences and walls and structural improvements. The majority of works will be carried out over the summer months to minimise disruption to students, teachers and other school staff.”
