The need for progress on a major extension and sports hall at St. Raphael’s College, Loughrea was highlighted this week by East Galway TD Paul Connaughton.
Deputy Connaughton has raised this issue with Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan and has highlighted the need for the new facilities at the Loughrea school to go to tender as soon as possible.
‘A number of difficulties have been encountered in terms of the provision of a major extension and sports hall at St. Raphael’s College, Loughrea since it was given the green light to go to tender in September 2013. Because of the difficulties encountered, the project now has to be re-tendered.
‘I understand that the revised Stage 2B was recently submitted by the school design team and is currently with the technical staff in the Department. I have asked Minister O’Sullivan to ensure that that examination is expedited and that the project can proceed to tender in coming months.’
