Minister for Disabilities to visit the Holy Family School in Cootehill

The Minister for Disabilities Finian McGrath will visit the Holy Family School in Cootehill next week.

Minister McGrath has arranged to visit the facility on Monday to see first-hand the current state of the school buildings, which has faced widespread criticism.

Funding for the new building was approved in 2015, but the much anticipated project has been dogged by delays.

The minister originally intended to visit the school in September however the trip was postponed, much to the disappointment of everyone involved.

Speaking ahead of the visit, Local Fianna Fail TD Niamh Smyth says “there have been too many delays to date regarding this project. It’s important that pressure is kept on all Government Departments.”
