GARDAI have been called to a stand-off between sub-contractors and parents at Kilfinane National School.
Dozens of people are currently at the school and negotiations are underway.
Sub-contractors who worked on the school say they are owed money on the project. Once the children finished school this afternoon a number of contractors went in to take back their property.
The power was turned off, classroom doors and fitted furniture taken out. It is understood a jeep was parked on the way out of the school to block them exiting.
Seamus Cusack, of Dovetail fitted furniture, says he is owed â‚¬19,500.
â€œWeâ€™re getting the run around. I took out the cloak units for hanging coats, sliding doors cabinets, doors of sink units. Itâ€™s sad we are forced to do this.
â€œWeâ€™re blocked in at the moment, somebody is after pulling a jeep across the front and there are parents and kids around as well. There is a stand of between the parents and all the contractors. We are trying to get out the gate and weâ€™re not being allowed,â€ said Mr Cusack.
Mike Browne, electrical contractor, says he is owed â‚¬14,000.
â€œJobs are very tight, jobs are only paying the wages. I turned off the power,â€ said Mr Browne.
Ger Rice, who supplied all the joinery, is owed â‚¬21,000.
â€œIn total there is between â‚¬120,000 and â‚¬150,000 owed to sub-contractors that we know off. Iâ€™ve removed all the classroom doors, every door from the building has been removed.
â€œWeâ€™ve done everything we could apart from this. We came in to the building when the kids had left. If we get paid weâ€™ll come back and install what we took out and have the school ready on Monday morning,â€ said Mr Rice.
The state of the art new school, which cost in the region of â‚¬1.5 million to build, was only opened in September.
