Additional Teaching Posts Granted On Appeal.

30th April, 2012

Carlow Fine Gael TD, Pat Deering,  has welcomed the announcement by Education Minister Ruairi Quinn that five Carlow Primary Schools have been allocated additional teaching posts following their appeal. St. Josephs NS., Carlow, Holy Family Askea Boys & Girls, St Fiaccs, Graiguecullen and Scoil Mhuire Lourdes, Tullow, have all had their appeals successfully heard and earlier decisions have been reversed.

“This is good news for the five schools concerned, I know there will be others disappointed but another appeals meeting will be held in October and schools who missed out this time will an opportunity to get another hearing. A lot of work goes into these appeals, the Department are trying to get the maximum return from their limited resources.”
