Clare County Council has granted permission for a substantial expansion project at Ennis Community College and Gaelcholáiste an Chláir. The planners made their decision on Wednesday having received applications on behalf of the school from Limerick and Clare Education and Training Board.

“We are thrilled with the decision to grant permission for this development”, said the school principal Brian O’Donoghue. “The project will see a build of over 4,100 square metres. It includes multiple classrooms and specialist rooms such as science labs. Also included is a full size state of the art sports hall. We have been in Ennis since 1938 and this is a very significant development which will greatly benefit our students and the community of Ennis.”

Construction is expected to begin in the coming months.
