Funds for Castletara NS for new soft surface in yard

Castletara National School in Ballyhaise has been allocated funding under the Emergency Works Scheme for a soft surfaced area in the yard.

Fianna Fáil TD for Cavan-Monaghan, Niamh Smyth, confirmed the grant, which was sanctioned by the Minister for Education, Norma Foley.

A delighted Deputy Smyth commented: “I understand that the funding will go towards a requested soft surfaced area to minimise the risk of injury in the yard.

"The addition of this area is most welcome news and will serve the students well. I would like to thank the school principal and indeed all the staff for their work and commitment during these trying times.”
