€28m minor works funding comes at right time for schools

27 November 2014

Brendan Ryan, Labour Party TD for Dublin Fingal, has welcomed this week’s announcement that €28m in Minor Works Grant funding will issue to all primary schools with permanent recognition next week.

“This funding allocation will go towards vital improvements to school buildings, grounds, and mechanical and electrical services.  The grant will also go towards purchasing standard furniture, and equipment for IT and physical education.  The Minor Works Grant will have a significant impact on small and large schools alike.


“This grant comes at a time when schools are in need of funding to carry out some works and to purchase the equipment they badly need. I look forward to the positive impact this will have for students and wider school communities in the coming months.”
