Department monitoring Maynooth school building projects, Deputy Catherine Murphy told

The Maynooth schools project

The Department of Education is closely monitoring progress on the building of two school in Maynooth by the Sammon Group, the Dail has been told.

On April 17, Kildare North TD, Catherine Murphy, asked  the Minister for Education and Skills the likely impact on a construction project, the Sammon project at Maynooth,  following the appointment of an examiner to a group; if the completion date will be met; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

In his reply the Minister said: “The building project to which the Deputy refers is continuing to progress to schedule.  My Department and the local ETB (Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board) to whom the project has been devolved for delivery, are closely monitoring the project in the context of the main contractor having recently entering examinership.”
