TEN new permanent classrooms are to built at two primary schools in Limerick after funding was approved for the works by the Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairi Quinn, pictured.

Five new classrooms are to be built at Mahoonagh NS, Castlemahon and five more are to built at Catherine McCauley School in the city.

All of the new classrooms will replace rented prefabs which are currently in use at the schools.

A total of 91 primary schools across the country have been included in the latest round of funding as part of the multi-million euro scheme to phase out the use of prefabs across the country.

“This announcement shows the Government’s commitment to phasing out the inefficient renting of prefabs and is great news for thousands of children and their teachers. We are delivering on a key commitment given in the Programme for Government,” said Minister Quinn.
