An Taiseach Enda Kenny will officially open the €12m Colaiste Ailigh in Letterkenny today.

The school boasts the most modern facilities and is the jewel in Donegal’s educational crown

Colaiste Ailigh is one of eight schools in seven different counties around Ireland that were built under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model.

In effect, the PPP model sees the State doing a deal with a private sector company which is responsible for designing, building, financing and maintaining the school.

The accommodation includes general teaching accommodation, specialist classrooms/workshops, physical education hall and ancillary areas, hard play courts and playing pitches, parking spaces, engineering services and all associated site development works. 

Mr. Kenny will also turn the sod for the new extension at the CoLab building at Letterkenny Institute of Technology.
