Lack of school places needs to be urgently addressed – Darragh O’Brien TD

Fianna Fáil TD for Dublin-Fingal and Spokesperson on Housing, Planning and Local Government Darragh O’Brien says additional secondary school places are urgently needed in North Dublin.

Deputy O’Brien said, “Dublin-Fingal is the fastest growing and youngest constituency in the country and a great deal of work has been done by successive governments to provide additional places at primary school level, parents and students are now facing serious problems with securing secondary school places for pupils.

“For the first time in years, Malahide Community School has a waiting list of students in its catchment area that it can’t offer places to. It’s the same story at Portmarnock Community School, Skerries Community College and St. Joseph
