The three schools in Offaly are:

Nationally, funding of more than €40 million has been earmarked for Summer Works projects in 2019. This will see improvements in primary and post-primary schools across the country

Announcing the list of successful applicants the Minister for Education and Skills, Joe McHugh said, “I am delighted to be able to make such a substantial amount of money available to benefit 307 schools nationwide. This €40 million investment secures money for schools to upgrade windows, meet curricular requirements and make structural improvements to buildings.”
