Louth Sinn Féin TD Gerry Adams has welcomed the joint statement issued today, Friday 20th July, by The Department of Education and Skills and the Archbishop of Armagh, Eamon Martin regarding the future of Scoil Náisúnta Bhrigdhe, Faughart.

Teachta Adams said;

‘I am pleased that the joint statement indicates that Scoil Náisúnta Bhrigdhe, Faughart will be open again in September in time for the new school term.

‘The pupils of this school and their families have been through a period of great uncertainty which has seen the school closed for the past year.

‘I am glad that both the Department of Education and Bishop Éamon Martin have worked constructively to ensure the reopening of this rural school and I commend the parents group for their tenacity regarding this matter.

‘The local school is the lifeblood of rural communities and I wish all those associated with Scoil Bhrigdhe my best wishes for the time ahead.’
