§ MR. W. REDMOND
In the absence of the hon. Member for the Harbour Division of Dublin (Mr. T. Harrington) I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland whether the recent grant by the Commissioners of National Education for the erection of a school at Gortown, County Clare, was in accordance with the rule of the National Board which states that in rural districts no site for a school would be sanctioned within three statute miles of an existing vested National School; whether the Kilfenora teachers have drawn attention to this rule, and raised an objection to the site selected; and what action has been taken in reference to their objection?
*MR. J. MORLEY
I understand that the manager and teachers of the Kilfenora School have, for the reason stated, raised objection to the grant made in the case of the school at Gortown, and that the matter is now receiving the special attention of the Commissioners.
