Speaking after the meeting, Deputy Connaughton said, ‘At the meeting we impressed upon the Minister the need for a new school building for Cahergal NS. Parents and pupils at the school have been waiting for years for a new school and the need for updated facilities at the school has been highlighted to the Minister in recent months.
