GREAT PROGRESS MADE ON MAYNOOTH EDUCATION CAMPUS PROJECT There has been significant progress on the Maynooth Education Campus project. The envelope works for both schools on the Campus are complete. These works were concluded by Carroll O’ Keeffe LTD and included the paving and landscaping of the courtyards in both schools. The project has now moved onto the next phase and the contract for completion has been awarded to Glasgiven Contracts. A recent airtight test has passed and tenders for classroom equipment will be issued very soon.

Both principals meet weekly with the contractors and are currently progressing electrical fittings and appraising ICT equipment. Principal Siobán McCauley welcomes recent progress stating, ‘we have a very exciting time ahead and we are really looking forward to providing the facilities that our students deserve’.
