Contractor appointed to build two Edenderry schools

Kildare-based company Sammon Contracting Ltd was yesterday (Wednesday) officially awarded the contract to build two new school buildings in Edenderry.

Confirming the news, a spokesperson for the Department of Education said it’s envisaged work on the project will begin on site immediately.

New buildings for both Scoil Bhride and Gaelscoil Eadan Doire have been in the pipeline for some time now.

Both new builds were given planning permission last year, and quick build projects taking 26 weeks were due to be completed by the beginning of last September.

However last May it was confirmed quick build projects would not be going ahead after tenders received were in excess of the norm for similar school projects.

Speaking to the Offaly Independent yesterday (Thursday), Scoil Bhride principal Kevin Duffy said the move to the new school building is planned for Christmas 2014.
