Funding Secured for Castleknock Community College Sports Hall Extension

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

Today the government announced a €150m package of investment in roads repairs, school buildings and home insulation across the state. The money will come from some of the proceeds of sale of state assets this year (eg the national lottery licence and the Bord Gais Energy (BGE)). The money is in additional to existing capital budgets for 2013 and the works will be carried out this year though some projects may run into next year.

The Minister for Transport Tourism and Sport, Leo Varadkar TD said "the package will have real and tangeable benefits for residents of Dublin 15 as it will allow for the long-awaited Sports Hall and Extension for Castleknock Community College (CCC) to go to tender this summer with construction commencing before the end of the year."

At the last General Election, as part of the Five Point Plan, we proposed to sell some state assets in order to raise money to invest in much-needed social and economic infrastructure as well as job creation. Today’s announcement is practical proof of that policy being delivered. I am really pleased that the Sports Hall and extension for CCC can now proceed to tender and construction this year.
