‘We hope to be ready to move into our new school this time next year’

Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail, Moville is hoping to move into its first permanent home in time for the start of the new school year in September 2017.

The Irish language school had planned to make the move this coming January but vandals, who torched the old St. Joseph’s NS building six weeks ago, have caused a further delay.

The burnt-out shell of the gaelscoil’s proposed new home continues to lie in ruin following the July 12 fire but the outlook is good.

The school has applied for emergency works funding to secure the site while an engineer from the Department last week surveyed the damage to the building.

Chairman of the board at Gaelscoil Cois Feabhail, Anthony Doogan, is hopeful that the proposed move, which had been mooted for a number of years, will go ahead next year despite the fire.
