12 New Classroom Primary School Building with Special Needs Unit for Scoil Naomh Bríd, Ballina 

Fine Gael TD, Alan Dillon, has welcomed confirmation that the major new development for Scoil Naomh Bríd, Culleens, Ballina has moved to the e-tenders process. Submission for Interest of Assessment has been sought through e-tender with formal tendering to follow.

The new 2469sqm single story school building will include construction of 12 new classrooms, special needs unit, on-site parking provisions, parking, landscaping, boundary treatments, site works and ancillary services.

Deputy Dillon said: “The development of this new primary school for Ballina is very welcome for the pupils and staff of the school.  This is one of a number of projects approved for Mayo by the Department of Education and since the start of June.

Recent approvals locally include St. Marys Secondary School, Ballina, St Oliver Plunkett NS, and Bonniconlon NS.

All of these investments in our educational facilities around Mayo create additional capacity for pupils and better teaching environments.”

Deputy Dillon concluded: “In recent months, I have been strongly prioritising shovel-ready projects.  Getting these labour-intensive projects off the ground is key to providing local economic growth and jobs around Mayo.

I look forward to the building works commencing at Scoil Naomh Brid, Culleens, Ballina and want to wish Clair Cooke Principal, Board of Management, Staff and Pupils the best of luck with this exciting new development.
