SOSB says 'concerned at delay' in school divestment

The last public meeting at Brannoxtown NS where local people voted for KWETB as their preferred new Patron.
Save Our School Brannoxtown is extremely concerned with the delay in the divestment of the school by the Archbishop given that the Archbishop had indicated a willingness to divest in March, writes Conor O'Toole of SOSB.

A public meeting was held as far back as the 16th May when the people of Brannockstown overwhelmingly voted in favour of the appointment of KWETB as patron of the school. SOSB understands that the Department of Education is enthusiastic about such an appointment and together with KWETB are anxious that the divestment proceed as quickly as possible so that the school reopens in September.

SOSB also understands that representations have been made by Martin Heydon TD to the Department and the Archbishop to expedite the process. It is imperative that the divestment be resolved quickly so that the school is restored to the local community for the benefit of the children of Brannockstown and its hinterland.
