I am delighted that today the Council approved the sale of the Mount Anville site in Mount Merrion to allow for a permanent home for Gaelscoil Laighean and the development of social and affordable housing.
The parents and teachers of Gaelscoil Laighean have long campaigned for a permanent site for the school. The finalising of the sale is welcome progress from the Department of Education.
The development of social and affordable housing in the Stillorgan Ward is very welcome news. The impact of the housing crisis mean many in our community are struggling to find a home or remain near family and friends. I will work with the Council to ensure that the development is prioritised.
Best of luck to all the pupils, parents and teachers excited to move to their new school.
