(Details Supplied) off Ballycullen Drive, Firhouse, Dublin 24,
REPLY. I wish to advise the Deputy that the temporary accommodation will not remain at the location to which the Deputy refers following delivery of the permanent accommodation at this property. It is not proposed to accommodate the post-primary school to which the Deputy refers at this location either on a temporary or permanent basis. The post-primary school will open as scheduled in September 2018 in suitable interim accommodation. With regard to the post-primary school's permanent accommodation, a suitable site has been identified and the Department is working towards acquiring the site. Due to commercial sensitivities relating to site acquisitions generally I am not in a position to provide further details at this time.

h I was delighted to attend last night's thrilling basketball encounter between two outstanding teams. Heartiest congratulations to Templeogue Basketball Club in their win over Tralee Warriors (including the thorn in Dublin Gaelic Football teams over the years, 'Star' Ciaran Donaghy et al!) at the Oblate Hall in Inchicore last night which saw them become Basketball SUPER LEAGUE Champions for the first time ever. A well-deserved win for the club and a great sporting boost for Templeogue and the wider South Dublin Area. Special congratulations to Coach Mark Keenan and his team.
