The Department of Education has approved the construction of a new classroom Scoil Naomh Bríd at Culleens on the Killala Road, Ballina.
Deputy John O’Mahony this week welcomed the announcement.
“I’m delighted that this new classroom had been approved,” he said. “This school is part and parcel of their local community and they play a very important role in the lives of so many young people.
“I’d like to acknowledge the role played by the school principal, staff and board of management in progressing it to this stage,” added Deputy O’Mahony.
