Additional accommodation for St. Patrick’s NS in Cornanool, Castlebar – Deputy Dillon

Fine Gael TD, Alan Dillon, is pleased to announce approved funding for St. Patrick’s National School, Cornanool, Islandeady, Castlebar.

The proposed development consists of 2 mainstream classrooms ensuits included, 1 under assisted WC and 1 SET based classroom. These additions will facilitate future growth in pupil numbers.

Deputy Dillon said, “Cornanool National School is located in close proximity to Castlebar Town. I wish to thank the Principal Dermot Walsh, Staff and the Board of Management for all their hard work in submitting this application to the Department of Education for this extension.

This project follows on from a number of funding announcements for Mayo by the Department of Education since the start of June.  Previous approvals include extensions to St Joseph’s NS in Bonniconlon, St Oliver Plunkett NS in Ballina, Ballintubber NS, and a new playing court at Mulranny NS.  All of these investments in our educational facilities around Mayo create additional capacity for pupils and better environments in which to teach.”

Deputy Dillon concluded: “I will be prioritising more of these projects with Government colleagues, as they are key to providing local economic growth and jobs around Mayo.
