Images of the brand new 1,000 place post-primary school, Pobalcholáiste Chú Chulainn, were released by the VEC last week showing the impressive school that will be constructed on a spacious ten acre site at the Marshes, in Dundalk town centre.
Construction will get underway later this year and classes are due to commence in September 2014.
The impressive 3D architect’s images give people a glimpse of what the new school will look like when completed.
“I am delighted to now be able to make these images public,” said Dr. Pádraig Kirk, CEO of Louth VEC, “up until now people would only have been able to conceptualise what our new school would look like, but now the people of Dundalk and surrounding areas can see exactly what we intend to provide.
“This makes it real. Pobalcholáiste Chú Chulainn will be one of the most architecturally well designed, modern, high-tech, comfortable and well-resourced schools in the country.”
The school is deemed to be an essential piece of infrastructure for Dundalk and its environs and will go before a future meeting of Dundalk Town Council for approval.
“I have worked with architects for many years now and can say with confidence that what we see here is exactly what we will get. This is a very exciting time for Co. Louth VEC,” said Dr. Kirk.
The VEC are holding an information night on the new school on Thursday, May 30 at 7.30pm in Wellington Hall, St. Mary’s Road, Dundalk.
The enrolment process for a place in first year in September 2014 will be launched on the night and brochures and application forms will be made available.
The VEC expect that there will be significant interest among parents of current 5th class primary pupils in the new school.
