It may still only be a paper dream but Colaiste Ailigh has moved one step closer to realising its dream of a new school building.
The Irish-speaking secondary school, located at Sprackburn House in Letterkenny, is home to more than 200 pupils.
But plans for their new school arrived this week and were put proudly on display.
The new school, which will include state of the art facilities as well as a full size GAA pitch and gym, could be complete by 2013.
Headmaster Micheal O Giobuin has been driving the project and it is hoped that contractors may commence work as early as the start of the New Year.
The school is the only Irish-speaking secondary school outside the Gealtacht area in Donegal.
Its popularity is evident buy a record intake of 55 pupils to first year just a few weeks ago.
The school is now awaiting council approval on planning permission before work commences.Tags:
