Minister for Education and Skills Ruairi Quinn TD has announced a second round of construction works for 13 schools across Donegal including Glenswilly National School, Newmills, Mulroy College Milford and Scoil Cholmcille, Letterkenny.

Siobhan McLaughlin, a Labour election candidate in the Letterkenny/Milford electoral area, has welcomed the news saying she is ‘delighted’ to see Donegal included in the allocation of  the funding and in particular three schools in her electoral area.

Funding will contribute to improving the school buildings. Ms. McLaughlin congratulated the schools on their success in accessing the funds, and noted that the jobs would be a ‘welcome bonus’ to the local construction workforce over the summer months.
