36 primary schools across the country, including 2 in Mayo, have been selected for a hot school meals pilot scheme.

It's a new initiative from the Department of Social Protection to provide a hot lunch to students on a daily basis from next month.

Scoil Naisiúnta Realt na Mara in Mulranny and Scoil Naisiúnta Achaidh an Ghlaisin, Belmulet will be part of the new pilot scheme, according to Mayo-based Minister Michael Ring, who says families will not be asked for additional contributions towards the scheme.

The Department of Social Protection says a mix of DEIS and non-DEIS schools in both urban and rural areas have been selected for the pilot programme, and over 6,600 students will benefit.
