Fine Gael TD for Longford/Westmeath, Gabrielle McFadden, has warmly welcomed funding approval for the construction of a new Technical Graphics Room, a Science Laboratory/Prep Area and two ASD classrooms at Ardscoil Phádraig secondary school in Granard.
“I am delighted that significant funding has been secured for these new teaching facilities at Ardscoil Phádraig and this allocation is clearly a recognition of the hard work invested by all of the school’s stakeholders.
“I’m also delighted that grant-aid has been awarded for structural improvement works to be carried out at Forgney NS.
“The funding tranches in both cases have been sanctioned by the School Building Unit at the Department of Education.
“It is also important to highlight that these projects will help stimulate economic activity by supporting construction jobs and by creating spin-offs for the local economy.”
