Cllr Tom Fortune Chairman of the Board of Management in Chraobh Abhann says he is delighted to have signed off last week on an application for an extension to the college. It is good news for Kilcoole and Newtown.
We have a fantastic college due the great work of principle Shane Eivers and deputy principle Carol Buckley and the staff. It is a high tech college and has 630 students which is estimated to grow to 830 by 2021.
The college plays a key role in the community. It also has links with colleges in Sweden , Germany, France and is engaged in student exchange and group visits.
Cllr Fortune concludes by thanking the school board for their support for the college.
