Silent Protest Held At Coláiste Chraobh Abhann In Kilcoole Amid Fears Of Future School Places

Concerns have been raised over the future of places for 59 local children at the school due to a lack of space.

Plans by the Department of Education to increase the school capacity have stalled since 2014.

Affected parents have no other options available as Kilcoole, Newtownmountkennedy and Newcastle are not in the catchment areas for any other secondary schools in the greater Greystones area.
