Planning application submitted for new Dublin primary school

The first new primary school for Cherrywood on Dublin's southside is a step closer.

Hines has put in a planning application for the new school which will be located directly south-west of Tully Park.

It would take in up to 700 primary pupils, and would have 24 classrooms, a special needs unit and a school hall.

Once planning is granted, the development phase will be overseen by the Department of Education.

The announcement has been welcomed by the Minister for Education & Skills, Richard Bruton, T.D.

This new school and the others we have planned for the area will be a fantastic addition to the Cherrywood community.
