€1.7m in funding has been allocated for an extension at St Tiernan’s College in Crossmolina.
The funding will be used to construct 5 classrooms at the school.
The classrooms will replace a number of prefab buildings that are in the school at present.
The funding has been welcomed by local Fianna Fail Cllr Michael Loftus.
Cllr Loftus says the school is 60 years old and this building work will make a huge difference to the 235 students and 22 teachers in the school.
