“I am absolutely delighted that approval has been given to establish the first Irish medium second level school in Dublin 15 in the form of an Aonad at Luttrellstown Community College. It will open in September 2018,” Dublin West TD and Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar has said.
“There are two primary level Gaelscoileanna in Dublin 15 but children wishing to continue their education through Irish have to leave the area to do so. This will all change next year.
“A few months ago, I organised a meeting on this matter with Richard Bruton, Minister for Education. I am very happy that we now have the outcome we requested. I want to congratulate all those involved in the Colaiste an Tulchan for their leadership in campaigning for this school.”
