Builders will be on site for the construction of the new building of the Ballygarvan National School from Monday next 28th March, according to Cork South Central TD and Leader of Fianna Fáil, Micheál Martin.
Sammon Construction were appointed to the project, following the delay caused by the unfortunate circumstances with McInerney Builders who were previously awarded the contract. As a result the Department of Education was required to begin the tendering process again.
“I’m delighted to see that work will now start on the new Ballygarvan National School ” Deputy Martin said. “This is a very important development and I’m sure it will come as a big relief to everyone involved with the project to see builders on site and construction beginning from Monday. This will ensure that the new school will be completed well in advance of the new school year in September. This new school building is extremely important to everyone associated with the school and the local community.
“I would like to pay tribute to everyone who has helped make this project move forward, particularly the school’s Board of Management, school principal Mairead Coakley, the school’s Parents Association and everyone else who has contributed. It was their hard work and dedication to the project that made this new building become a reality and it will stand as a testimony to their effort once it has been completed,” Deputy Martin concluded.
