Education | New schools in County Kildare development update

To ask the Minister for Education the extent to which provision is being made for three new schools at Celbridge, County Kildare on a proposed new site; the extent to which progression has been made over the summer months; the extent to which the various required development stages have been met; when it is expected that the schools in question will be available for occupancy; and if she will make a statement on the matter.


The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved to the National Development Finance Agency (NDFA) for delivery as part of a programme of school building projects.

A letter was issued by the Department to the schools in February 2022 to advise that their respective school had been included in the programme. The NDFA has since been in contact with each school to introduce the team, communicate arrangements and discuss the project briefs.

The next step is for the NDFA to procure a Design Team for the project bundle to progress the projects through the design stages. This process has been progressing over the summer months and is currently nearing completion. An estimated timeline for the completion of the project will be available once the design stages have concluded.
