Education | Celbridge Schools – UPDATE

To ask the Minister for Education the progress to date in relation to the triple school project incorporating replacement school for schools (details supplied); the extent to which all outstanding matters have been resolved in this regard; the number of issues outstanding; the timescale for the resolution of same; when it is expected the proposed new schools will be ready for occupation given the urgency of the situation driven by an increased population; the extent to which she and her Department continues to liaise with the relevant school authorities involved; and if she will make a statement on the matter. (Details Supplied) St Raphael’s and two other schools on the proposed single campus, Celbridge, Co Kildare


The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved to the National Development Finance Agency (NDFA) for delivery as part of bundled school building programmes. The shared education campus at Donaghcumper, Celbridge is in the bundle referred to as ‘Project Liffey’. This campus project will include the three schools referred to by the deputy.

A letter was issued by the Department to the schools last year 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.  An estimated timeline for the completion of the project will be available once the design stages have concluded.
