Progression for new Boys School in Clane

Meeting with Parents in Clane

Meeting with Parents in Clane

I have been working to progress the construction of the new boys school for Clane following meetings with school officals and concerned parents.

As parents and all the school population will be aware there have been many delays in advancing this new school build and it is imperative it now progresses to the build stage.The school have long awaited the new build and have sat on the school building list for a number of years for different reasons. It is important now that the project has got to planning permission stage that it rapidly advances through the remaining phases and proceeds to construction as soon as possible.

I have raised this with the Minister for Education and requested rapid progress now that it is into the final stages. Currently children have to run back and forth to the neighbouring girls school for extra accommodation and the school is struggling to manage with scarce space as it grows for recreation and even basic classrooms. The new building is a matter of urgency and now it is almost ‘shovel ready’ we need to keep it moving forward.

General Election Campaign Underway in Kildare North


The campaign to elect the next Dáil is now officially underway. Polling takes place on Friday 26th February 2016. I am running to win a seat in Kildare North and I am asking voters in the constituency to give me their number 1 vote. I’ve met many voters over the past few months and look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the remainder of this campaign. Over the past 5 years, Kildare North hasn’t received the level of representation it deserves. We’re suffering from the lowest levels of garda coverage in the country, lacking childcare support behind other counties, all capital investment in the constituency has effectively stopped, and we’ve no strong voices representing us in Dáil Éireann. By voting for me on 26th February I will ensure that Kildare North is no longer represented by silent Government backbenchers. If you agree, please vote James Lawless no. 1 on polling day.
