Alternative arrangements must be put in place for students of Scoil Chaitríona Cailíní as a matter of urgency – Denise Mitchell TD

Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Bay North Denise Mitchell has said that it is imperative that alternative accommodation must be found for the students of Scoil Chaitríona Cailíní so as to minimise the disruption in their studies after the fire that occurred there this morning.

The Dublin spokesperson for Sinn Féin said:

“I want to express my relief that there were no students or staff on the premises at the time of the fire. I believe that there was one local resident taken to hospital as a precaution for smoke inhalation and I wish them a speedy recovery. I want to thank the emergency services for ensuring that the damage was minimised.

“An Garda Síochána must be given time and space to establish the cause of this fire and, once that is complete, refurbishment efforts must be put in place by the Department of Education.

“I have written to the Minister for Education Joe McHugh to highlight the need for urgency in accommodating the students and to ask what plans are in place to do so.”
