The Education Minister is getting to work on the list of schools that will benefit from funding she is getting in the new capital spending plan.
€3.8bn has been pencilled in for projects under Jan O'Sullivan's remit.
Minister O'Sullivan has said the previous spending plan prioritised new builds, so there could be good news for schools in need of refurbishment this time around.
However, she has said the details are still being worked out.
“I am just about to get a demographic report which will tell me exactly where the new schools are going to be needed or where extensions to schools are going to be needed,” Minister O’Sullivan said.
“So we will be working on that over the next couple of weeks, then we will announce the schools capital programme which will specifically say what schools are to be built in what years.
“There will be a lot of interest in it across the country because obviously I do get a lot of representation.”
