25 schools across Cavan and Monaghan have received funding for major improvement works next summer.
The funding was announced this week by Minister Joe McHugh under the 2020 Summer Works Scheme and is described as a vital investment for the futures of children in the region.
Nationally, 30 million euro has been allocated to 405 primary and post primary schools across Ireland.
The works to be carried out include improving safety systems such as fire alarms and emergency lighting, as well as implementing newly surfaced play areas and car parks.
A priority for this year’s scheme is climate action, which sees schools obliged to plan for electric vehicle charging.
