A new state of the art education facility to accommodate the 130 students from St Patrick’s Special School in Enniscorthy is a step closer after the project past the final stages in the approval process.
It’s believed that the new school will cost €10 million and will now go to tender.
If a buyer is found, building of the new school may commence before the end of the year.
A site has been earmarked for the new school at Drumgoold.
Wexford TD Paul Kehoe says the school will help to deliver a first class education for the pupils.
