Once complete, the school will have the capacity to cater for 750 students. It will be of a similar size to the existing school building which means an

effective doubling of the current building infrastructure at the school. Ms. Kindlon explained that "this is an exciting time for Scoil Uí Mhuirí as it

embarks on this latest phase of its development. This will be the third extension to the school in recent years and is an indication of the rapid growth

the school is experiencing. The new two storey extension will comprise a range of specialist rooms including a new science lab, engineering room,

construction/woodwork room. Multimedia lab, library, pastoral offices and general classrooms. The school also looks forward to doubling its provision

for students with Autism by providing a Special Needs Unit which will also have the capacity for 12 students fully equipped with classrooms, meeting

rooms and daily living skills area. The new extension will also have a high specification ICT infrastructure installed throughout. The building will be read

y to accommodate students in late 2017/early 2018.” Ms. Kindlon also stated that she was delighted to be working with Mc Garry Ní Eanaigh and Mc

 Aleer and Teague whoc both have a wealth of experience in school design and construction. Exciting times ahead for Scoil Uí Mhuirí….
